Bodyvox presents: Death and Delight
Death and Delight returns with BodyVox's original brand of dance theater, capturing the timeless power of Shakespeare's beloved stories of tragedy and love with Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Danced to live piano music by Prokofiev, Romeo and Juliet is set on a spare stage where dancers' bodies mimic architecture and emotions careen forward to an inevitable fate. A Midsummer Night's Dream, set to Mendelssohn's score, will have all dancing in the garden of delight. Four lovers are led on a merry chase through the woods by spirited hip hop fairies, misguided romance and gender-bending role playing. A perfectly balanced evening of Shakespeare's tragedy and comedy, gorgeous dance, exceptional live music, BodyVox. Perfect!
