Contemporary / Modern Dance:
"Rub the Sleep" (2007), by Zach Morris and Tom Pearson, at La Mama E.T.C. April 28, 29 and May 5, 6, is a dream about waking up. In a hallucinatory landscape of hope chests, merit badges and tupperware, the perfect housewife purees a cocktail made from gin and a homecoming queen's corsage; a Japanese war-bride makes a presentation to the Junior League; and a fierce and erotically aggressive series of collisions sends two young men stumbling. "Rub the Sleep" is an irreverent, rambunctious, limping sleepwalk that traverses the space between polished societal veneers and the unraveling, sometimes sullied, realities that tread just below the surface.
Created by Tom Pearson and Zach Morris in collaboration with Donna Ahmadi, Marissa Nielsen-Pincus,
