Two scientists on a deep space alien research mission summon magical crystal power on the search to uncover the underlying mysteries of human re-animation. Accidents unfold, the machine takes over, and the scientists are torn between their honor and their desire for power.
A physical based dark comedy that unfolds live like an action packed super hero film.
“There is a new theater ensemble in town, and their first show is something to not be missed.” — Twin Cities Geek
Chromera’s Peek is a original production by The Lesser Lamps (Dolo McComb, Søren Olsen). Told through stylized movement, technical wizardry, and abstracted language, this performance teeters on the less obvious edges of theatre performance in order to analyze some of the darker secrets behind capitalism, scientific discovery, and the price of progress.
