Our company is driven by the idea of mythologizing the experience of our senses; creating performances and visual art that challenge the viewer's perception of time and perspective as well as allowing our work's intention to be spacious enough for empathetic experiences to emerge. Our work realizes and exists in the state of liminality- the sense of being 'in-between'. By working across different disciplines, we filter our sensual experiences into the mediums that best embodies a facet of the myth our overall concept is based on.

The devil you know is better then the devil you don't

"like a crazy dream you just can't shake. At the center of it all, there's a furious little heart that pumps equal parts vitriol and grace."
- Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe

the devil you know is better
than the devil you don't

The critically acclaimed the devil… combines Scofield’s disciplined physical distortion of classical technique with Shuey’s distilled visual design to create a heightened sense of reality. Supported by Morgan Henderson’s hypnotic, original score incorporating live sound design by Kamran Sadeghi, and lighting by Jessica Trundy, the devil…. creates a world shaped by accumulating, external forces as the company delves into a haunting physical space shaped by brutality and grace. The Stranger has called it “a beastly ballet, both harrowing and gorgeous.” -Brendan Killey.  the devil… includes a ghost like corps de ballet of ten local pre-professional dancers auditioned and rehearsed in each city, including students at University of Washington, Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Boston, and Barnard in New York.
