Mark Dendy’s MultiMediaMythical Labyrinth Seeks Your Support

“Labyrinth (Extract)”

Renowned contemporary choreographer Mark Dendy is putting on a play. But he needs a barn!

Fortunately you can help Kickstart the somewhat autobiographical but deeply mythical original production of Labyrinth:

“Set in New York City, with Theseus hailing from Athens, Georgia, and aided by a transgender Ariadne, the hero quest is given a picaresque spin. En route to choreograph a Rockettes number, an artistically conflicted Theseus washes down anti-anxiety pills with Absinthe just as Super-storm Sandy is approaching the city.”

“His journey through the mythic labyrinth is peopled with a Jungian underworld of colorful, disenfranchised characters, and pits him against multiple forces including a mechanical bull at the Bellevue Psych Ward.”

“With Dendy’s signature wit, intense physicality, and searing social commentary, Labyrinth explores a world of inner demons and, ultimately, redemption by way of midlife crisis.”

“The play is performed by Mark Dendy, Heather Christian, Stephen Donovan, and Matthew Hardy, with sound, music, and video created live on stage by the performers amid an ever-changing set of found objects.”

Wow! You don’t see something like that everyday.

Now go help these kids out!
