Rampaging Light is dance existing in parallel worlds; framed time shattered between reality and dreams; and the magical mishaps that you thought didnít happen but did.† You are held and released by the silent step, soundless wind, screaming train, and buzzing wall of voices.† This is performance that will alter your perception of a single room and the flipping numbers on your clock.† Sometimes everything does not have to make sense.
