"Shay Kit"

A dark comedy with squirrelly, grotesque characters 

 

Set to music by Tom Waits, Shay Kit is a dark comedy with squirrelly characters.  The quartet of women move with smeared makeup and exaggerated expressions while the trio prances around screaming and clapping.  The dancers’ actions and reactions paired with the grotesque sounds of Tom Waits paints an absurd, yet comical scene.
