TETHER theatre/dance and Chapin Choreography present an evening of new work.
An Unimportant Failure is a play and paper cutout. As two sisters become the caretakers for all these lost items, people, and stories, they must also learn face their own losses. Inspired equally by the Greek’s story and by Matisse’s cutout images of Icarus, this piece uses dance, theatre, poetry, stillness, scissors, song, paper, myth and modern legend to ask questions about the ones we loose. What kind of holes can people leave behind? What do we loose and gain of ourselves when we truly let go? This show is about bravery and adventure, about looking ahead.
Pink House uses the poetry and life of Anne Sexton as a jumping off point to explore mental health, marriage, and the female experience.
