A Shot in the Dark: Program B

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street, First Floor New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


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. SHOT IN THE DARK is Dark Fest's variety show of work all done with no lights from our grid.


Written, Designed, and Performed by Jon DeGaetano

What does it mean to take our resources to their very limit and beyond? What happens when that resource is our very own mind and body? Exhausted is the beginning of an exploration into how we over extend both fossil fuels and our own endurance.

Created and Performed by: Daniel Burns, Olivia Vaughn Hern, Eben Hoffer, Dana Weintraub

Abandoned by her father, a girl travels to the end of the earth to try get him back. Dreams and reality begin to blur as she finds herself dogged by a mysterious beast, and she finds herself on a different kind of journey than she ever could have imagined. Created by Daniel Burns, Olivia Vaughn Hern, Eben Hoffer and Dana Weintraub, VICTORY uses music, shadow, and puppetry to create an intimate and lyrical storytelling experience.
