All the Devils Are Here: A Tempest in the Galapagos

A National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by DiverseWorks (Houston) and Studio5 (Evanston, IL) and NPN

All the Devils Are Here collides Shakespeare’s The Tempest with the true story of an unsolved murder in the Galapagos in 1929. This immersive dance theater performance follows the failed attempts of a nihilist couple, a conservative family, and a baroness and her two gay lovers to escape the world of man on the uninhabited island of Floreana.
