Part-dance, part-concert, and part-travelogue, The Planet-Eaters: Seconds explores a duet as an intimate exchange of rhythms. In this reconfigured study of the original The Planet-Eaters, Rawls brings new material to his reflection on Balkan folklore and the exhilarating failures of becoming self and other. What starts as a game of counting for two performers finishes with a fragmented encounter of themselves that is epic, incidental, singular, plural, and neither here nor there.
