A Savage Journey

A Savage Journey triptych by Amy J Lambert and Markeith Wiley, featuring Andy Buffelen.
Inspired by the vivid imagery and esoteric narrative style of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas" the dance-theater triptych sends the performers and audience down the rabbit hole.
The three performers who inhabit this world fight to embrace the chaos of their reality, try to make sense of what they cannot control, and grapple with the corruption of the American Dream.

Direction/Choreography: Amy J Lambert & Markeith Wiley.

“Those exhausted from the banality of the everyday found catharsis at the Slate Theater last weekend, losing themselves in the unhinged theatrical dance work Savage Summer. The truly convention-weary may have even found some commonalities with the main characters, who operate entirely outside the realm of “normal.”
