“Thoughts & Prayers”, by Danse Theatre Surreality
September 19, 2019 - September 29, 2019
Thoughts & Prayers is a new dance-theatre work with a palpable activist heart. Through a gripping exploration of America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss, this thought-provoking world premiere aims to harness the power of hope, individual action, and a call for change. Following each show, audience members and community activists are invited to discuss the next steps to create change.
Through this new dance-theatre concerto of equal parts music, movement, and theatre, we take a journey with Dana and Felix, as the couple experiences five Disasters. In a dramatic mix of original, virtuosic music, partnering, dialogue, and unique staging, six musicians (woodwinds and strings) are active participants in the performance. embody two distinct Greek Choruses: Congress and The Activists, giving full voice to the political clashes of present-day.
This collaboration between artists of completely different disciplines creates a complex, elegant, disruptive world brought to life by creator/director Lauren Hlubny and composer/performer Thomas Giles.
Danse Theatre Surreality embraces an equitable approach to ticket pricing. Tickets for all performances are available at a sliding price scale ($15, $35 and $65.)
