Matt Guidry Presents


October 25 - 27, 2019

Written and performed by Matt Guidry
Directed by Maren Ward
Creative Advisor — Kevin Kling

There are very few moments when you know the rest will be different. Moments that define. It’s easy to look back and know when things changed. But to know it in the moment is a different thing altogether. To sit with it. With the weight of it all. To know you have been swept up and placed on an edge from which you will never leave.

THE EDGE BETWEEN is an evening of stories and reflections exploring Matt Guidry’s paradoxical journey, simultaneously normal and unique, of raising a child with significant disabilities. Through lyrical storytelling, movement, and projected imagery Matt takes us along to that place in life where we have a foot in two worlds. It’s a story that lives at the intersection of perception and perspective, where it’s always a matter of finding balance.

In this extremely personal reflection, Matt brings to a culmination three decades of work as a performer, director, creator, choreographer, teaching artist, parent, and disability advocate.
