"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!
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.
