The Future Project: Sunday Will Come 

When: Nov. 5-7, 8 p.m. 2009
Price: $15-$25

Metaphors for love, death, entrapment, and "otherness" all collide in The Future Project: Sunday Will Come, a new collaboration Campo Santo and the Erika Chong Shuch Performance Project. It's a thoroughly beautiful and purposefully disorienting play, ostensibly about two people trying to quarantine a sick fish, but actually about, well, something else. Even the shrewdest audience members won't figure that out until two thirds of the way through. Dancers Shuch and Sean San José star while poet-turned-songwriter Denizen Kane provides a musical canvas, skulking in the background with his guitar. The dancing is precise and clean, with not a single movement wasted: A gesture as simple as a hand smacking a table top helps propel the story forward. Likewise, the script (conceived by the performers, with help from Octavio Solis and Philip Kan Gotunda) relies on economical use of language. It unfolds through a series of non-sensical dialogues, most of which tackle death from a humorous angle.  The actors speak in non sequiturs and their conversations become a kind of pas de deux. Everything has a double-meaning: You'll think they're ironing out the kinks in a relationship -- then you'll realize they're talking about a fish. It's a detail-heavy play but the payoff is fantastic. Through  Nov. 7 at Intersection for the Arts (446 Valencia St., San Francisco) $15-$25 TheIntersection.org
