Description

Rapid Descent’s debut show Skin Tight features three performers, two actor/dancers and a trumpet player. Equal parts memory play, contemporary love story, and timeless drama, Gary Henderson’s script is a spare and honest narrative about an enduring romance. Kissing, fist fights, arguments, and silences find their place in this production as the cast plays with an athleticism of both the heart and body, and reveal the bare essence of Henderson’s touching text.

Visceral, athletic and passionate, Rapid Descent’s _Skin Tight _promises a multi-disciplinary tour-de-force that pushes the boundaries of theatrical storytelling. Directed by Megan Finlay. Featuring Beth Deitchman, Nathaniel Justiniano and Aaron Priskorn.

Rapid Descent are a new San Francisco company led by Artistic Director Megan Finlay, that creates work that combines theater, dance and live music.
