Mark DeGarmo is refining a set of transdisciplinary solo works, highlighting a range of theatrical styles and genres: drama to comedy and abstract to literal. This one-man show combines concert dance, music, theater, performance art, athleticism and clown. It investigates Western artists Walt Whitman and Raymond Duncan. “The Metrics of Awakening,” “Whoever You Are (Meditations on Walt Whitman),” and “A Happening: Raymond Duncan’s Art/Work Theories” make up the 60-minute program.
