"Created by artistic directors Diane Arvanites and Tommy Neblett, “Desiderare’’ is intense and up-close, and it is visually compelling and darkly vivid, chock full of arresting images." - Karen Campbell, Boston Globe
"Desiderare" is the Italian phrase for desire in all of its many forms. Desiderare, examines the lives of seven young women and their existence together. It is an exploration of the inner landscapes of turn of the century sex workers. The piece invokes images of females who are tough, resilient, independent, competitive, and sexually transparent. The men take their place as voyeurs and the audience is in danger of the same. Although Desiderare references 19th century brothel workers, it can be placed in any time historically because of its content. Desiderare is the fourth evening-length work created jointly by co-artistic directors Diane Arvanites & Tommy Neblett for Prometheus Dance. We invite you to enter “the house of a left-handed god.”
