DUAT title treatment and key art

In the darkest hour of the night, surrender your heart to call the light.

Two halves of a soul hunt through a hall of records.
A librarian breaks the seal of a mysterious archive.
A teacher and her class prepare the pageant to end all pageants.

Duat conjures a spell of disintegration, transformation and regeneration through an incandescent performance in three parts. A little bit vaudeville, a little bit rock and soul.

featuring Jacques Colimon, Tenzin Gund-Morrow, Toussaint Jeanlouis, Daniel Alexander Jones, Jomama Jones, Stacey Karen Robinson, Kaneza Schaal

with Trevor Bachman (Music Direction, keyboard), Ethan O’Reilly (bass), Josh Quat (guitar), and Marieke Wiening (drums)
