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.”
The Winter Intensive provides a supportive community to challenge yourself physically and artistically. Six intensive days interweave technique, repertory and creative investigation as well as a chance to get to know your fellow students and your community.

Creating Community has always been a vital part of the Company's mission, whether on stage, in the studio or in the classroom. We design outreach residencies focusing on how creativity shapes our lives. By bringing our work to audiences in ways that directly affect their lives, we expand the notion of everyday movement and connect everyone in different yet unifying ways.
