FOR ONE WEEK ONLY, DA! Theatre Collective is proud to present the premiere of DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL, their first full-length production since the award-winning 2009 hit Leave it to Beverly. Developed and work-shopped for over a year by the Collective under the direction of Heather Huggins, DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL features choreography by Lisa del Rosario, a script by Kirk German, and an original score composed by guest artist Catherine Davis.
Loosely adapted from The Romance of Photogen & Nycteris, a magical novella written by Scottish author George MacDonald in 1882, DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL tells the fable of a mysterious castle where one child is raised entirely in darkness while another is nurtured by the sun. But kids will be kids, and each of the children soon starts craving new experiences… Using only bodies, music, and light, DA! intertwines movement, music and storytelling to illuminate this forgotten Gaelic fairy tale.
