Dance the Orange
The Umbrella Collective makes its Denver debut with their visually stunning, multimedia performance event; Dance the Orange. Co-Presented with Control Group Productions and Naropa University, Dance the Orange will run at work|space Denver in early January 2013.
Orpheus, a famous mythological musician, looses the love of his life after a tragic accident on their wedding night. In his pain, he travels down into the underworld to get her back. With permission from the great God of the Underworld, Hades, he begins his quest to find his lost love. In doing so Orpheus befriends the Child-Queen Persephone as she guides and protects him through the three hellish realms of the Underworld. Dance the Orange tells a story of inevitability of loss and the unpredictable nature of love.
This original production is 1 part dance, 1 part theatre, 1 part opera and 1 part art installation. Dance the Orange is an event that pushes the boundaries of what live performance can be, pulling inspiration from the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, the artwork of William Blake and the musicality of Daniel Johnston. Featuring video projections, installation, live music and the simple magic of bodies in space, you will step into a world of spectacular transformation.
Join us for this magnificent and exhilarating performance event at work|space Denver; Denver's home for experimentation, excellence and integrity within and across contemporary expressive media! For more information, visit www.dancetheorange.wordpress.com or www.workspacedenver.org.
