In the aftermath of a cataclysmic event, DARK chronicles one family’s attempt to survive in a small cabin atop a lonely mountain. Stylized physical action, dark comedy and hauntingly beautiful songs unravel a story of desperation, resilience and hope.

Conceived and developed by Kickwheel in 2012, DARK, written by Timothy Ryan Olson with music by Peter Wise, received its world premiere at the 8th annual Berkshire Fringe festival. Inspired by audience feedback and ongoing interest in the project, the company has spent the last several months in the lab workshopping, reimagining and streamlining the piece with an eye towards a US and UK tour in 2016.

Building on the original premiere, this new version of DARK is directed by Adam Sugarman and includes architectural adjustments to the script, a heightened sense of style within the piece and the addition of a live sound score reimagined for live percussion.
