Get to ODC early for a good seat. Patron tix (only slightly more $) give you early seating. Well worth it!

There was a lot just across the street. $2.50 for the evening, and it felt safe.

Description

Mystical Abyss is a visually striking live performance piece infused with the potent elegance of Noh theatre and the raw athleticism of modern dance. Mystical Abyss features venerable performers from the traditional Noh theatre of Japan and the Native American performance traditions, set against a stellar backdrop of computer graphic animation projecting symbols of the ancient Japanese Jomon culture and other world-wide symbols of ancient power.

This original multidisciplinary theatre work is inspired by the creation myths of the Japanese Goddesses Amaterasu (Sun Goddess) and Izanami (Goddess of Creation and Death) and the Iroquois Sky Woman. Fusing Native American storytelling, dance and music, centuries old traditional Japanese Noh theatre and contemporary Japanese animation art, Mystical Abyss evokes powerful images of unity across different generations, cultures and traditions with the cyclical story of death and rebirth.
