Local artist, educator, choreographer, stage director, dancer, and creator Tandy Beal came up to KZSC to talk about her art and her next upcoming event, the HereAfterHere.

The, HereAfterHere: a self-guided tour of eternity, is theatrical performance is happening September 9, 10, and 11, 2011 at the new Cabrillo Crocker Theatre in Aptos, California.

This full-length work asks the perennial question — “What happens after we die?” It braids dance, visual narrative, circus, text and music to make a rich mosaic of contemporary and traditional concepts of the afterlife — with a mix of humor, magical visuals and kinetic poetry. Dancers and actors are directed by Tandy Beal with original music by Jon Scoville.

One might ask, “If there is an afterlife, where is it located? Is it exclusionary? Why is it for eternity? How do we get in, and what’s the price of admission?” Or you might think along the lines of Gertrude Stein who said, “There is no answer. There never has been an answer. There never will be an answer. And that’s the answer!” Whatever your thoughts are, this concert is a time when we can explore this mystery together.
