PHILADELPHIA, PA: Dance Visions NY presents "Morning, Afternoon, Evening"
Dance Visions NY
"Morning, Afternoon, Evening" brings to life the imagery and ideas inherent in an original lyrical and symbolic poem which depicts a journey following a river from its source in caves all the way to the mouth of the ocean. The poem is a discourse between the protagonist and her companion(s) as well as an inner dialogue. This theatrical interpretation utilizes one actor, in monologue, and 8 dancers who embody a physical manifestation of her thoughts and her surroundings, as well as serving as her companion(s).
This work can be perceived on many levels ranging from a personal journey to the history of the universe. The times we are living in only heighten the depth of the piece. In addition, the work helps to demonstrate the beauty and power of the precious and tentative natural world.
Themes and repertory from the dance of Isadora Duncan contribute to the timelessness of the work. This interdisciplinary artwork encompassing theater, dance, poetry and music illustrates the cyclic nature of so many aspects of our world and has particular relevance today, with its theme of ending in order to begin anew. The work is accessible and open to many levels of interpretation in which each viewer will derive personal meanings from the work.
With actor Tzena Nicole and Dance Visions NY, poem based on "the Subject and Power" by Kyra Jucovy
