LEAVES OF GRASS – UNCUT, a solo performance by Patrick Scully
Leaves of Grass – Uncut, a solo performance by Patrick Scully, summons the spirit of Walt Whitman & reveals many sides of the 19th century poet, from furtive to fierce, reflecting his utopian dreams, & his tribulations. On stage, this world includes projections of eighteen men dancing together, ranging from tender & sensual to boisterous. Stripping down to bathe in the opening scene, they set the tone for the evening: relationships between men & the repressive forces that surround them. History, art, literature, even opera merge to reveal aspects of Whitman that fascinate today, now that male/male relations have moved out of the shadows into the light of day.
