Eventide is a multidisciplinary piece produced and performed by modern circus performer and dancer, Kyle Driggs and Andrea Murillo, that uses expressive movement, object manipulation, and contemporary, surreal scene-setting to expose the challenges we face in romantic relationships and relationships with ourselves.
Eventide follows the story of a young couple in a rough patch fueled by thoughtless patterns and personal misgivings. One late night, in a twilight daze, they find the freedom to relive pivotal moments, face hard truths, and pursue reconciliation, healing, and personal growth.
The story begins in the ether and narrows in on an earthly apartment where we find a troubled couple awake despite the late hour. Their disconnection unfolds with the interplay between present interactions and past memories, interior monologues and the unsettling droning of late night television infomercials.
With the future of their relationship at stake, they choose to explore the hovering, seductive void that’s been made accessible by inexplicable phenomena that dictate the mystifying early hours. There in the void they move freely, without the weight of mental clutter, giving them a clarity that ultimately leads them toward redefining their individuality and partnership.
About The Company
3AM is an interdisciplinary company that explores the twilight hours – a place in time where dreams hazily blend with reality, where strange things happen and latent truths can emerge.
The company is the creative endeavor of master performers, Kyle Driggs and Andrea Murillo. They bring their expertise in the dance and circus arts to 3AM where they explore the intersections and boundaries of their art forms.
“Visual rhythm & contemporary stories”
Kyle Driggs is a prominent circus performer who specializes in a unique fusion of juggling, object manipulation, movement, and theatrical persona. While he developed an early interest in circus arts, his career began eight years ago at the esteemed Ecole Nationale de Cirque de Montréal.
With a focus on experimental stage setting, immersive narratives, and the physical orchestration of common objects, Kyle’s work strives for the convergence of a modern aesthetic and high technical skill.
Andrea Murillo is a classically-trained performer whose style has been widely influenced by her work with modernist dance and contemporary theater heavyweights.
These works have continued to impel her investigation of dramatic movement, immersive theatre, and their vehicles of expression, notably film. Andrea is a recent Master Interdisciplinary Arts Teacher with the National YoungArts Foundation and is a certified Gyrotonic Expansion System
Teacher. She is currently screening her latest dance feature Conduit in film festivals.
