ONE NIGHT ONLY
(Running as long as we can)

A comedic, poignant portrait of what it means to be a dancer and the tension involved in the enduring pursuit of a highly physical life. The rigorous and athletic performances of Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass are framed with narrative, backstory, and play-by-play calling. Robert Saenz de Viteri creates the role of sportscaster, narrating the night as a live sporting event.
