After 5:00 is a haunting yet hopeful plunge into co-dependency, alcoholism, trust, and love. The seeds of the work developed through a House Special residency at ODC Theater in 2007. Since then, co-founders Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein’s signature duet has been performed in theaters, night clubs, schools, and galleries in Singapore, China, and throughout the U.S. After 5:00 is one of the company’s most narrative works, with a core of daring, athletic, and intricate partnering balanced by two solos.
The duet inspired the creation of the evening-length quartet Fallout in 2009.

Press & Accolades
“A tempestuous duet… passionate and volatile… I love many things about this company, but one of their most important choreographic achievements is that the narrative is constant… and remains true through every movement variation.”Heather Desaulniers, Heather Desaulniers Dance Commentary
“Their interactions overflowed with the most improbable lifts, suspensions, throws and precarious holds… a beautiful working out of the tensions created by kinetic bonds.”Rita Felciano, Dance View
