“Thoughts & Prayers” explores America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss. Over the course of an hour, the work presents Dana and Felix, a fictitious couple, and their experience of Five Disasters through dramatic mixtures of music, movement, and images—a dance-theatre concerto. Six musicians (3 woodwinds, 3 strings) embody two distinct Greek Choruses: Congress and The Activists, giving full voice to the acrimonious clashes of present-day America. Each Act, or Disaster, is introduced through a virtuosic cadenza and dance solo, and followed by orchestrated structures of dialogue, physical partnering, and contrary staging. This collaboration between artists of completely different disciplines creates a complicated, disruptive, elegant, and dark world made cohesive by director Lauren Hlubny and her team of dedicated professionals.
Thoughts & Prayers, dance-theatre-concerto en 5 actes, aborde le lien entre le public américain et la tragédie.
