Minneapolis-based artist Karen Sherman lays bare the behind-the-scenes intricacies of a dance performance in this evocative and insightful examination of work, life, and loss. Soft Goods illuminates the choreographic elegance of manual labor, the loneliness of theaters, the spectral beauty of a lighting focus, and the human hand behind all stage art. Created with and performed by an ensemble of 10 theater technicians and dancers. From every ticket, $1 will be donated to Behind the Scenes, a charity providing financial assistance to production personnel seeking treatment for chemical dependency or mental health issues.
