The Chicago-based dance company returns to the trash heap with a remounting of Monument, a work exploring consumption, waste, landfills and humans' increasingly unbalanced relationship with the natural world. The title is in reference to the lasting effects and unintended consequences of consumption—specifically, the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island which, in addition to reaching higher than the Statue of Liberty(!), is one of the few man-made structures visible from space. The Seldoms' physicality and engagement with critical issues ensures it will be a powerful performance and a thought-provoking one.
