this is now, and now, and now.

Premiered March 4-7, 2020

In this incisively humorous ode to aging, a multigenerational ensemble of women confront impermanence and imperfection
with striking musicality and movement. Known for infusing bleak themes with sparkling wit, cakeface's newest work merges
the subject of aging with a wabi-sabi worldview: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect.
