NOTE CHANGE OF LOCATION
The Aldous Theater at Triskelion Arts
118 North 11th St. 3rd Floor, Brooklyn NY
Red Gloves takes on Love! With the death of St. Cupid, what will become of hopeless romantic Flannery O'Mally? What will become of her sensitive and desirous heart? Featuring The Ultimate Man, the great Young BeGrown, Diva Delirium, and the Valentine's Day Ninja. With St. Cupid dead, what's the power of love?
The Red Gloves performance group, directed by Billy Schultz and designed by Geneviève Leloup, combines dance, theater, and comedy to create a living comic strip that is funny, touching, beautiful, and somehow absurdly true. Their theatrical hijinks combine the rigor of dance, the expressiveness of theater, and an indulgent sense of humor that pulls no punches. The Red Glovlies are Becca Bernard, Ariane Bernier, Cassandra Burroughs, Mia Crivello, Marcos Duran, Hannah Labonte, Erica Lindegren, WT McRae, Corinne Robkin, Miguel Suero, and Kareem Woods.
Dear you, (You know who you are.)
We had a great time. I felt things. You felt things, too I think. I'm not sure. It's not you, it's me. Totally me. I mean it's obviously you, but mostly me. Timing or something. Well, it's Valentine's Day and I was thinking we could see where this goes. I have a new dress and you thought about combing your hair so why not? I'll bring the wine if you bring a topic of intense meaningful conversation. We can dance and talk, but mostly dance and possibly listen to some music that makes us lonely and hopeful and have butterfly bellies. I had this idea that we would fall in love and then break up and then get back together and then well, you know and then gaze at each other from a distance. I will be or appear to be drunk. You can join, too, if you like. You can bring me a Whitman's sampler and I will bring protection literally and figuratively. I love you (if that's ok with you.)
P.S. Josselyn Levinson of Tough Cookie Dance presents love letters a new half-evening, dance-theater work. It's a date.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
