DESIDERARE: to wish, to want, to like, to desire
May 12 - May 14, 2011
Choreography by Diane Arvanites & Tommy Neblett
Performed by Prometheus Dance
with Karen Klein - poet & Ashima Scripp - cellist
Desiderare is a full evening length dance/theatre piece suggestive of nineteenth century brothel workers where seven women are waiting. The chairs that support them in their wait become a part of their story; a leverage for change, a representation of inner strength or resignation, a voice in solidarity, a tool of passion, a prison metaphor. The work invokes images of women who are tough, resilient and independent.
