ABOUT THIS SHOW

Crudo and Elsie are a Floridian couple who came together share a troubled pasts and a desire to move forward and away from it. They build their new lives on a foundation of mutual commitment and the reliable structures of Christianity and body-building. When Crudo becomes interested in exploring the sexual side of their relationship, the new experiences prove dangerous to them both. The cement of their repressed selves cracks open, and their lives  unexpected trajectories. The story of repression and transformation they experience is told through dance and textually saturated scenes.
