Fail Better: Beckett Moves UMO

Created by UMO Ensemble
Directed by Elizabeth Klob

A love story, between UMO and Beckett. With a teeter-totter. And ropes.

UMO explores the thoughts, themes, characters and images inspired by the writing of Samuel Beckett with Fail Better: Beckett Moves UMO, their critically acclaimed love letter to Samuel Beckett. Five archetypal Beckett characters tackle love, life, death, and goings-on in typical Beckett fashion: with humor, metaphor, stillness, and gross indecency—creating a living, visceral experience. Their exploration takes them into the air on aerial ropes, balancing on a giant sculptural teeter-totter and reacting in a sonic world that is the imagined inside of Beckett’s head.

Thursday, July 22 at 6:00 p.m.

Saturday, July 24 at 6:00 p.m.

Sunday, July 25 at 6:00 p.m.

One hour, with no intermission.
