Please join BSU Theatre as we build a community that gives voice to those who have remained silent. Due to the intimate and immersive nature of this production, audience sizes are limited to 14 participants only.

Night Light
Performed by Tarik O’Meally

Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 7 pm & Friday, April 5, 2019 at 7 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Night Light is a reflective examination of the current discordant American crisis of identity. Performed in a survival horror setting, Night Light investigates what our innermost monsters represent…discovering how we face and conquer those monsters emboldened by faith that the conflict will improve us. Through visceral athletic movement, this work explores themes of self-preservation, transformation and wholeness to a haunting musical score. This work is about seeing who will get out alive. To survive, however, we must walk down the dark alley. Discover the noise in the basement. Solve the killer’s identity. In the end, Night Light requires performers and audience alike to understand what our perceptions of our internal monsters, villains, or enemies say about our own state of being.

“To confront the enemy without we must first confront the enemy within.” – Bell Hooks
