THE NECKLACE OF THE DOVE
Performances January 14, 2013
Written by Andrea Thome
Directed by Lisa Rothe
The world of 21st-century immigrant, transsexual women in Queens intersects with the 11th-century love stories of Arabic-Spanish philosopher Ibn Hazm. Through text, music and movement, these refugees from different eras travel between languages, genders and ways of loving – enacting their own Reconquista and reclaiming a pluralistic world.
Performances January 18 – 20, 2013
Conceived & Directed by Jonathan Vandenberg
A non-devotional theatre piece encountering Judeo-Christian mythology. Almost entirely without spoken text, a fragmented narrative reverberates with echoes of Genesis, destruction of the First Temple, and a messianic figure.
MONEY THINKS I’M DEAD
Performances January 25 – 27, 2013
Conceived by Seth Powers
A Great American Musical reimagined in silence, rigor, and bare necessity. This choreographic theatre resituates a commercial classic on the outskirts of post-war American culture, as Broadway finally meets Black Mountain.
