Minotaur is Off-Leash Area's newest production exploring gender power thru the ancient minotaur myth, dance, live music, and projection.

About this event

If you missed the opportunity to see Minotaur in person, here's your chance to catch what some audience members are calling "our best work yet."

Buy a virtual ticket for an online viewing of the performance film, and you will get the link to the video, which you can watch anytime you choose between now and September 30. (No matter what date you buy the ticket for, you can watch any time you choose before it closes at the end of September.)

With Minotaur, OLA Co-Artistic Directors, choreographer Jennifer Ilse and production designer Paul Herwig, lead a gender-diverse, multi-generational, and fiery cast to take audiences on a thoroughly interdisciplinary and utterly imaginative journey exploring the possibilities laid bare by the metaphorical beheading of the patriarchy. With this production, the artists ask: Once we’ve chopped off this monster’s head, can we really avoid its seductive power and finally be free of this labyrinthine system of oppression?

Dancers Nieya Amezquita, Gabby Garcia, Jennifer Ilse, Jesse Schmitz-Boyd, and Joseph Wurm perform Minotaur with contemporary dance and mask performance. Accompanying the performers and immersing the entire audience is live music and sound score by Dameun Strange, and a live animated projection design by OLA Co-Artistic Director Paul Herwig, costume design by long-time OLA collaborator, Kym Longhi.

All together, Off-Leash Area takes the audience to an otherworldly space where memories of ancient myth, our urgent present, and dreams of an uncertain future collide.
