About Dark Fest
We are turning off the lights! In this Festival and environmental initiative, The Tank is celebrating innovative performance that utilizes self-sufficient and alternative energy sources. Artists are using everything from glow-in-the-dark mouth guards to flashlights and more to shed some light on their work. Don't worry - we keep the AC on.

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE ART, PART III in the 56
ROBERT AND STEVE IN THE MACHINE
Written, Directed, and Designed by Erin Perry
Robert (Katharine Loughery) and Steve (Allison Akmajian) exist in a video game. And they want to get out. Desperately. They grapple with their existence and their friendship as they die, are reborn, and play the game over and over. Will they make it out alive? Will their friendship survive? And when all is said and done, is the hell they know better than the one they don’t?
