Donovan & Calderon present Abaddon in HERE Arts Center’s Culturemart Festival.

Join us for a 30 minute work-in-progress production on Saturday, March 7th and Sunday, March 8th at 8:30pm.  Tickets can be purchased here.

Drawing inspiration from Alain Renais’ Last Year At Marienbad and Luis Buñuel’s The Exterminating AngelAbaddon depicts a surreal social gathering that dissects the behavior, character, and class structure of a group of partygoers and traps them in a never-ending cycle of interactions. Working with a multi-generational cast of downtown performers, Abaddon explores the extrarational forces behind the precariousness of social life.
