Preview Performance “Bluebeard Through the Looking-Glass Darkly” Aug 26-27

JOIN us for a special showing and preview of Steve Wasson and Corinne Soum’s “Bluebeard Through the Looking Glass Darkly” to be performed in Kanopy Dance Company’s “Dark Tales” concert in its Season 2017-18 at the Overture Center for the Arts.

“Bluebeard Through the Looking-Glass Darkly”

August: Saturday 26, 2017 (4.30pm and 7pm), Sunday 27, 2017 (2.30pm)

Suggested Donation $15

Created and Directed by Steven Wasson and Corinne Soum.
Performed by Kanopy Dance Company, directors Lisa Thurrell and Robert Cleary.

Like all fairy tales, Blue Beard is an expression of the collective unconscious, and offers a possible understanding of universal patterns in the human psyche. It depicts the dance and the dynamics between the two grand archetypal forces, the masculine and the feminine. Using all the resources of modern movement theatre, Wasson and Soum are inventing for Kanopy Dance Company a voyage, punctuated by humor and derision, through the labyrinth of Bluebeard’s mind.

Following the success of “A Strange Day for Mister K.” and “Good Morning Mister K.”, this will be the third work created by the Theatre de l’Ange Fou for Kanopy Dance Company.
