Deborah Slater Dance Theater - NIGHT FALLS

NIGHT FALLS (2011)

"Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver, poet

Peregrine can't sleep. The following day she's turning sixty and has to give a speech which she's not yet written... so she bounces off the walls of her apartment in the middle of the night trying to figure out what to do about getting older and what the hell she's going to say to a bunch of young people looking for advice. Peregrine-- played by several performers-- excavates her life for clues: What has she done wrong? What has she done right? What should she do now? And then, an unexpected visitor alters the course of the night.

These performances were made possible by The Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, the San Francisco Arts Commission, The Stanley Langendorf Foundation and the Art of the Matter Producer's Circle of NIGHT FALLS.
