    Big Dance Theater

    Presented by at Doris Duke Theatre

    July 27 - July 31, 2011


    Big Dance Theater

    In the Greek tragedy Alcestis, a king avoids his own death by sending his wife in his place--quite a set-up for Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar's U.S. premiere of Supernatural Wife. Legendary myths and timeless issues are explored through a free-wheeling combination of dance, theatre, music, and video in this inventive modern adaptation of one of the great dramatic works of all time.

    Co-Artistic Directors of Big Dance Theater Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar have received numerous awards for their dance and theatre work, including the inaugural Jacob's Pillow Dance Award in 2007. Parson has choreographed for stage, television, and film including Jonathan Demme's Philadelphia; Lazar is a seasoned actor and director whose film career includes roles in Silence of the Lambs, Beloved, Lorenzo's Oil, Philadelphia, and Henry Fool.
