Using the catalyst of a little known Jewish tradition, where from the moment of death until the moment of burial, a body should not be left unattended, a SHOMER (guard) is engaged to sit through the long overnight vigil. Through the integral use of creative projections, theatrical innovations, and Corning’s poignant choreographic style, this group of performing and visual artists collaboratively create a stunning, often times surreal and otherworldly experience, proffering a transcendent work that touches more on life, than on death. Presented by CORNINGWORKS The Glue Factory Projects.
