SAVE THE DATE: New Ohio Theatre

WORLD PREMIERE

Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins’s poetry, Doug Varone’s new work unfolds 8 interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 20 artists, it delves deep into our memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives. “This new theater piece”, says Varone, “explores a darker and more disturbing range of emotions than has generally characterized my work; it is about the relationships we’ve all survived and their impact on our lives.”

Repertory

“At the heart of every work, is pure dance making and the creative relationship with my dancers is paramount to this process. I work within a very liberal and open atmosphere, and as a result the dancers are great allies in my dance making. They are intuitive interpreters of the work that I imagine. Its this great trust that allows the work to flourish”
- Doug Varone
