Dance the Orange takes a multimedia walk through the underworld at work | space
On the cutting edge of the dance world, it's not just about movement anymore, although the physical voyage through space is still an integral part. In Dance the Orange, a new performance created by Monica Dionysiou and Marc Devine of the the Umbrella Collective, the movement is suspended in a web of theatricality and multimedia, with elements of video projection, installation art and opera.
A modern take on the myth of Orpheus in the underworld, Dance the Orange draws on a heady brew of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke, the ecstatic imagery of William Blake and music by Daniel Johnston. See the vibrant work, co-produced with Control Group Productions and Naropa University, beginning tonight at 8 p.m. at work | space and continuing nightly through January 13.
