BLENDING CONTEMPORARY DANCE AND THEATER
A powerful synthesis of elegant modern dance and complex storytelling, Rooming House is expansive, compelling, and also legitimately funny.
Lucky Plush Productions is based in Chicago, led by founder and Artistic Director Julia Rhoads. The company is committed to provoking “a palpable live-ness” shared by performers in real-time with audiences.
The performance begins with an intimate conversation among friends grappling with some life-changing decisions, and then the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice gets thrown into the mix. With all dancers donning headset microphones, they travel down a physical and psychologically complex rabbit hole, using movement and conversation to examine human behavior. Playful and personal, this performance investigates how we tell and retell stories while searching for some semblance of truth.
This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
