DOUBLE BILL
APRIL 25 – MAY 12, 2019

Premieres by Montreal’s La Otra Orilla and DJD, both featuring live music.

Double Bill is two shows in one! Start with a cool experience–MAGNETIKAE is a flamenco tale on an ice floe by Montreal’s acclaimed company La Otra Orilla. Then finish off with a fiery tale called Lovestruck by DJD–try to keep up with Cupid’s arrow as it ricochets on a bizarre and whimsical flight.
