THE DARK, KRYSTLE features footage of vampy icons Linda Evans and Joan Collins from the 80’s soap DYNASTY, and Robinson creates a rhythmic poem out of their theatricality letting them play out in repetition, the result a hypnotic conversation between these two figures. Is this a battle of good versus evil? Or does the shift from one character to the other represent a transformation, the result of a Faustian bargain? (Craig Hubert)
