EmSpace Dance reimagines Monkey Gone to Heaven, our 2013 work about primates and prayer, and how we use both to understand being human. It's a collection of dances, stories, sermons, and songs about doubt, faith, and our primate ancestors. See a transcendent encounter with a gorilla, a girl who loses her tail, a prayer to the patron ape of complicated communication, and more! Monkey "looks honestly at fundamental questions about what makes us human and how to we relate to something beyond us." - SF BAY GUARDIAN

detour dance brings back our 2014 work Filaments, a reverie of vanity, grotesque attention-seeking and, ultimately, the need for community.
