@ New York International Fringe Festival
August 12th-25th , 2016
Lamia is a serpent that yearns to be human. She watches the life of a man she desires unfold, helpless to attract his attention. When a stranger offers her the chance to assume a womanly form, she must carry her shameful secret with her, lest her true identity destroy them both. Part dance, part live-music and part theater, Lamia explores the lengths we go to and what we compromise to reach the promise of love.
This multidisciplinary dance-theater piece brings together the musical talents of Brooklyn based rock band Ellis Ashbrook and singer/songwriter Janna Pelle, as well as Brooklyn fashion designers Tilly and William. Written by Molly Haas-Hooven with choreography by Shannon Stowe, Lamia will premire at the NYC International Fringe Festival this summer.
What We Lost
@ The Muse Brooklyn
October 7th-17th, 2014
Holly lost it with Jordan Finer after a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Martin lost it in a parking lot with his middle-aged next-door neighbor. Greg lost it with Claire in her mother's bed, a towel over the sheets. Through six true stories, ranging from the hilarious to the heartbreaking, What We Lost is a deeply honest dance-theater piece that explores the circumstances, emotions, and complexities of losing it.
Playwright Matt Herzfeld took these stories and snippets and created the evening of monologues contained herein. These stories are all based on the experiences of our ensemble, and we believe paint a multi-faceted portrait of our culture’s continuing fascination with the rite of passage that is losing one’s virginity.
In The Hand of Dreams
@ The New School for Drama
October 31st-November 14th, 2013
In the Hand of Dreams follows the story of the love between a peaceful warrior, Toki, and Kit, a fox spirit. When a jealous sorcerer places a curse on Toki, Kit must enter the dreamworld of the gods to try and save him - but will she succeed? Adapted from ancient Japanese folktales translated by Y.T. Ozaki, In the Hand of Dreams is fantastical tale of a love that knows no boundaries and the lengths one will go to keep it, told in a spectacle of poetry and sound, movement and music.
