Santa Monica Civic Library, Santa Monica, California

A noir-ish whodunit set in a public library, Out of Circulation incorporated the audience members into a murder mystery teeming with sexual tension. Upon entering the library, audience members signed up for temporary library cards and were guided to their areas of research. Live music by Carla Lucero accompanied the dancers who transform from nervous test takers to power hungry manipulators. “The case was stacked against her . . . They never should have booked her.” Text by Merridawn Duckler.
