For this year's winter solstice, the darkest night of the year, people filled the seats of the Paradise Theatre in Paonia for the 5th annual performance of Craig Childs' "Dark Night," a multimedia and spoken-word extravaganza celebrating the time of year when "the snakes of winter coil tightly around us," as Childs describes it.

The two nights of the performance featured a variety of stories, visuals and sound-rich excursions into the unknown and the paranormal. 

For this episode of Local Motion, a sampling of the stories and sounds from "Dark Night."
