Event Description

Directors, Ellyzabeth Adler and Sara Maslanka split the bill in Art In Response to feature four works of new, in-process and remounted Ensemble repertoire. I Bet You Think This Dance is About You is an in-process work by Sara Maslanka devised using the poetry in, milk and honey, by Rupi Kaur to explore how perceptions and experiences shape us. This in-process work will be developed into an evening-length work set to premiere May 2018.  Unraveling Bill is remounted Ensemble repertoire that originally premiered in 2006. Unraveling Bill tells the story of William Blake, a soldier who commits suicide after returning from the Iraq War. Ellyzabeth Adler remounts Unraveling Bill with original and new Ensemble members. Chapter 3: The Dinner Table is an expanded danztheatre work by Maslanka focused on the connections and interactions at the dinner table. Engaging the senses, Maslanka and Ensemble investigate how group identity and dynamic translates beyond the dinner table. HOPE is a new danztheatre work by Adler based from the letters of incarcerated men. that asks us, what do we hold onto and where do we find hope at times of struggle and is based off of the letters of incarcerated men. Join Adler and Maslanka as they ask audiences to respond, redirect and take action.
