"Let me just say this - tonight is a night of stripping, tonight is a night of peeling away, layer by layer by layer by layer - What will be left? What will we know at the end of it all? Much less! That's what!
Let's begin...."

Dark Matter is the new performance from Kate McIntosh hosted by a woman in a spotlight, dressed in a sparkling dress and a long grey beard. With the help of two assistants, some small strange dances and a few materials you might or might not have at home, Dark Matter approaches the big scientific-philosophical questions in a full-on show-biz late-night theatre style, illustrating these knotty conundrums - time and gravity, being and not being, thought and the body - through what look suspiciously like a series of improvised home-science experiments.
