Surreal and often comical, Ink Boat material is typically not found in the
sunlight but rather hiding under some rock or rotting log. If we were a
building, it would be an old one with many of the carefully worked details
eroded to the point where new images emerge from the pock marks and cracks.
Ink Boat references Butoh Dance and Tadashi Suzuki's Theatre. The music
ranges from string quartet to polka to rock to industrial noise. Themes
gravitate around cycles of life and death, dreaming and waking.
Performances can be theatrical events with complex lighting and sound
requirements or improvised site specific works.
