Goodnight War examines how and why we support war in our everyday lives, through the framework of a funeral. This evening-length dance performance integrates workshop investigations and the Eulogy for War series. Live a cappella and folk music accompany seven dancers and an ensemble, of singers and members of the Philadelphia community, as they move through the Sanctuary at Broad Street Ministry, celebrating and mourning the passing of war.

Goodnight War: The Naked Stark on the Stark Reality Review, April 2012
"It’s definitely not art for art’s sake: its art with a purpose and Stark makes no apology for this fact, nor should she. Deceptively simple, Goodnight War provided a complex meditation on the culture of war and our addiction to it and I, for one, hope that there’s much more to come."
Goodnight War Preview, April 2012
"Much of the movement for Goodnight War is task-based. Dancers build and knock down towers of cups. Stark learns to ride a bicycle in real-time (she used to ride as a kid, but hasn’t much since and has purposely avoided brushing up on her skills for this production)."
