The Odyssey Premieres October 2

Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 3.23.33 PMThe Premiere approaches!

“An epic tale of Homer’s “The Odyssey” gets condensed into a concoction of modern dance, with Sonia Plumb Dance Company performing Oct. 2-4 at the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford. With scenic elements, costumes, lighting and a scene filmed underwater and projected, this is a journey that audiences will want to share. And although the themes of the poem remain true through the ages, it doesn’t hurt to have a score that is in the rock opera ilk to round out the experience.” (The Hartford Courant)

Sonia Plumb Dance Company’s latest production features three dance premieres that explore the touch points of light, darkness and the shadows in between. “The Moon,” based on a tale by the Brothers Grimm, blends together Plumb’s choreography, Cory’s original music, and shadow puppets by David Regan. Inspired by 19th century dance pioneer Loie Fuller, “Sun Spinning” combines fabric and lights to create mesmerizing moments in motion. “Fractured Light” explores the dark recesses of the mind, truth and vulnerability.
