Don't miss this opportunity to experience a tapestry of voice, image, and musical soundscape, with Lynne Duddy and special guests, a'cappella singers Emily Post. Part science, part mystery, part cosmic joke, dark matter delves into the push and pull of the universe, exploring stuff that we can’t see but is definitely there, we think…

What is dark matter? Is it the force that holds the universe together? Or is it the great, mysterious unknown of our collective consciousness? Do all the things we lose become a part of the dark matter? Can we ever find them again?

Take a ride on the dark side, as Lynne Duddy uses science as a metaphor for the human heart, and explores the answers within us all. dark matter tells the true stories of everyday life and the extraordinary things that can happen.

A daughter realizes that she accompanied her father to the other side. A scientist questions her career after her discovery is met with disbelief. A five-year old girl experiences the power of the lightning, only to discover a dark truth years later.

ABOUT Lynne Duddy, an artist with a passion for people, story, and making connections. She is a native Portlander who lives in the heart of the city. 

ABOUT Emily Post, a five-part a'cappella group that includes Pat Janowski, Janette Kaden, Sarah Cawley, Lisa De Grace, and Alex Richardson, and provides the soundscape for this amazing program.

ABOUT Portland Story Theater: dark matter is the fourth in a series of sold-out shows for PST's 2008 season. dark matter is PST’s twelfth major production in Portland. Portland Story Theater, brain child of Lynne Duddy, and originally created in collaboration with Lawrence Howard, Walt Schaefer, Alton Chung, and Rick Huddle, was launched in 2003 to bring the urban community together for a unique performance experience, telling tales that stimulate the mind and rouse the heart. Past productions have included Love, Death, and Other Scary Stuff; All the Wrong Places; Beginner's Luck; Everybody's Got One; Who Am I And Where Is My Coffee?; And Then The Bed Broke!; Always Say Yes; Licking the Plate; Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare, featuring Lawrence Howard; Okage Sama De, featuring Alton Chung; and On Sale Now!, featuring Rick Huddle.

ABOUT ScratchPDX Collective: ScratchPDX provides a stage for the seasoned as well as the unlikely performer in various stages of the creative process, from raw to refined.  Since November, ScratchPDX has hosted over 50 Portland-area artists, with acts ranging from juggling and stand-up comedy to modern dance and abstract performance art. Each show [$5] has been filled with enthusiastic, engaged audiences, eager to see something new and willing to stick around afterwards to talk about it.  Every month, new artists come to perform and discuss their work;  new people walk in to find an unexpectedly warm, inviting space inside a non-descript building on the east side; and both are amazed by the fun, supportive atmosphere. Join us as we continue to build ScratchPDX into a creative incubator for local performing arts.
