PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHATER: Ordinary Festivals and Other Works
Sara Pearson and Patrik Widrig, artistic directors of PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER since 1987, have gained an international following for work that transforms the familiar into the mysterious, the subversive, and the intimate. Creating and presenting "American dance theater at its funniest and most compelling" [Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Switzerland], they have toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and New Zealand.
Set to the enchanting folk music of pre-war Italy Ordinary Festivals is a piece for 300 oranges, 7 performers, and 2 knives that "pushes the rituals of a traditional community over the edge into mysterious, subversive, and often funny acts." (The Village Voice).
"Most amazing! Most enjoyable!" - The New York Times
