Arthur in Underland - 3 min. excerpts

DANDELION DANCETHEATER and COUNTERPULSE present "Arthur in Underland" An atmospheric mystery in Dance, Theater, Music and Projections A bright-eyed young man longs to escape the mundane of his family and school life, and find meaning beyond the world bounded by Telegraph Avenue and the Haight-Ashbury. His hunger to be admitted to the closed circle of the band Power Play's bewildering, occult-infused entourage, combined with his hero-worship of the band's mysterious leader, is his undoing. In Arthur's open-hearted search for transcendence, shadowed influences draw him toward his descent into a bewildering, intoxicating world, in which anything is permitted, lives are tainted, and everything goes wrong. With the world premiere of Arthur in Underland, the genre- and gender-bending ensemble Dandelion Dancetheater continues the three-part cycle which began with 2011's audience-immersive piece FRIEND.
