:: Dahlia ::

Dahlia -  dance collaboration with choreographer Letizia Mazzeo and dancer Elsa Petit - was created for The Place Resolutions! 2011.

Dahlia lives alone in a world of her own imagining, of mundane routines punctuated with episodes of wild fantasy. Reading words from a dictionary, her misunderstandings are vividly enacted through a variety of expressive means - dance, music, sound and projection - each time shedding a little light on the character of the lonesome protagonist. Gradually the realities and fantasies begin to blur, the walls of her world heading toward collapse - will Dahlia escape her strange prison or be forever trapped?
