Betwixt and between… where would you go to never come back? 

Journeys through time and space, dancing with those both loved and forgotten… In  Falling Awake: A Fugue State, UMO travels deep into the human condition and its many realities, via language, music, physical theatre – and ballroom dancing.  

Glimpses of lives repeat, layer and expand as performers and audience follow narrative threads spun in multiple variations. UMO’s surprisingly funny and compelling new work takes the audience on a shared journey through unexpected recognitions and lives both old and new, in a marvelously strange and memorable journey. Identity, love, and memory dance together like dust in sunlight. Once it’s over, the memory of the journey barely remains and we return to the place we began - but find ourselves transformed.
