Under a star-filled sky, five performers encamped in the wilderness venture into a full-bodied, psychotropic walkabout - where the push and pull of an extreme event propels each of them to confront their place in the universe. Against an original pulsating sound score that grinds synth and bass, FUTURE PERFECT wrestles with our desperation for a spiritual sign and asks: What magic is left? With daredevil physicality, VIM VIGOR communicates the complexity of human relationships through their signature dance-theater aesthetic, bodies will flare, emotions will flood, and the sharp urgency of our deepest fears will rocket through space. FUTURE PERFECT premiered in September 2016 at the historic Lobero Theatre with DANCEworks in Santa Barbara.
“When theatrical wonder like this hits, it’s a full-body experience that sends goose bumps down the arms and raises the hairs on the back of the neck.” - The Santa Barbara Independent
