The past and present meet for an eclectic celebration of life in
Tap Dance Widows Club, an innovative flagship work by Louise Reichlin & Dancers, that ignites and brings together multiple dance forms in a unique multimedia piece using the power of Dance; an inside story from 30's Hollywood to now. Louise Reichlin (widow of Alfred Desio), Loretta Zerby (widow of Jon Zerby), and Katherine Hopkins-Nicholas (widow of Fayard Nicholas) met to share memories, photos, and videos of their well-known husbands. Their conversations about moving forward without their husbands' physical presence are both hilarious and moving; this became the audio for this transformative work.
After grieving for the loss of a loved one, we accept the richness that person has brought to our lives. Join us for a suite that includes live dance combined with user and artist-generated multimedia that explores our changing perception of death, and the positive baggage we carry with us when a loved one is no longer corporal but still present. Dances include:
'Mourning Light', 'Tap Dance Widows Club', 'Remembrance'
'Woman Sleeping' (revival 1981), and Conversation with the audience/artists
Director/Choreographer - Louise Reichlin
