WIFE: Enter the Cave at the Hammer Museum  Loosely based on Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave,” Enter the Cave is a story of transformation and transcendence told through illusion. Utilizing dance, original costumes, sets, lighting design and musical score, Enter the Cave rearranges our notions of reality, space, and time. As three embodiments of one creature’s psychophysical state, WIFE manifests as a questioning of truth, a beckoning into darkness, and an offer to surrender to modern myth in its most irrational form.
