Three Shades of Dark

This collaboration between The Seldoms and ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) is a work in three scenes, presenting variations on themes of instinct and consciousness, sight and sightlessness. Three Shades of Dark is a homage to movement and sound born of shadow – bodies pry open mouths, tense into knots, or become instruments for a percussive language.

"the intellectually adventuresome, whistle-clean aesthetic shared by ICE and the Seldoms wrings an odd beauty from the grotesquerie of these images" ‐ TimeOut Chicago
