WOMEN-ROSES-WATER

TAGS: Art Ballet Contemporary Dance Drama Film Virtual Dance
Mon 3/29 - Thu 9/30

PLGDC artistic director and choreographer, Peter London, showcases his Trinidadian and Tobagonian roots in an electrifying and powerful work of a woman's lament for the loss of her child to violence. The work utilizes the dynamic movements of the Yoruba Orisha, Oya (goddess of storms and whirlwinds and keeper of the gates to her son's burial ground) and the Orisha, Oshun (protector of children and goddess of love and beauty). The world premiere includes a solo based on Marilyn Holifield's book Seven Sisters and a Brother and her recounting of her father’s planting roses at her bedroom window. London completes “Men Roses to Women” with a male quartet of exquisite and luminous dancing by PLGDC dancers featuring former principal Leon Cobb. Artist Michael Elliot has been commissioned to create five paintings for digital projection.
