About the Show:
What happens when the finish line is finally in sight, and you realize you're running the wrong race? If you're Diana Dinerman, you stop, pivot and then run like hell, in another direction. You don't know where you're going, you just know you're running for your life - the life you want. At least, you hope so.
DETOUR is Diana Dinerman's solo show about what happened next. DETOUR traces her path from artist to academic and back to the stage, through a 10-year period of isolating research, an intoxicating love of the California choreographer Lester Horton that led to a PhD, heartbreak fueled vandalism, and fasting in the jungle. In a refreshing portrait of getting your life all wrong, she let go of who she thought she was and founds parts of herself she didn't know she had. Told with humor and insight, DETOUR mixes exposition with editorial, humor with heartbreak, feminism with femininity Diana Dinerman has her finger on the pulse of every woman rising up.
