With music inspired by the films of Jean Luc-Godard, innocence and purity share the stage with corruption, contempt, and darker life experiences as this urban fairytale unfolds. Layering film, movement and music to achieve “dramatic color” (New York Times), Troyano, Mills and Zorn probe the complexities of human relationships, with a touch of whimsy in the Company’s newest work.
“Sad truths alternate with much needed comic relief.”
