(un)Covered, is an evening-length performance of dance, theater, and art.

February 21st and 22nd of 2020 @ 8pm
The Sharon Disney Lund Theater at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA.

Where does your imagination take you when you fall in love with a painting? (un)Covered explores this question with one of the most iconic paintings in the world, The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. From this painting emerges a strange and unique world where we explore the human form: its beauty and its strangeness. We ask, is beauty ever really attainable or is it just an illusion? We go inside the artwork and ourselves with a quest to learn how the Venus is in all of us.
