IMMINENCE follows three generations of a family in an exploration of time, and how it shapes our lives from the smallest human instant to the massive geotectonic cycles of the earth. Following the death of her mother, Simone takes her twenty year old daughter, on a cross-country car trip to visit her parents’ first home in Coney Island. The narrative shifts between the past and present, not only through the generations of Simone’s family, but also through the much longer scale of geological time. Fleeting moments of human interaction – an awkward wedding, a deathbed vigil, an unlikely romance between the family doctor and an eccentric friend - cross paths with the slow, relentless time of the earth itself. Through the prism of theater, dance, video, electronic and acoustic music, time slows, stops, bends and unravels. Kit Fitzgerald’s blend of live and recorded video, in conjunction with Peter Gordon’s electronic, amplified music capture the range and might of the inexorable forces of nature. The intimacy of human time is captured in the live acoustic music of Ellen Maddow and the choreography of Hilary Easton.
