Lust for Life embodied in dance
A jazz infused, twisted dance theatre experience based on the play by Tennessee Williams.
The enigmatic DEKKADANCERS brings in bold director/choreographer Arthur Pita to re-interpret this classic 1947 Tennessee Williams play as a full out sweaty, jazz infused, twisted dance theatre experience. Set in New Orleans in the intense summer heat, the journey of desire and conflict ride the fast track. Blanche DuBois, a former southern belle, unexpectedly visits her estranged sister Stella and alluring husband Stanley. Blanche’s fragile world begins to fracture as Stanley stalks closer to the truth. Through vibrant choreography, song and an enticing cast, we get transported to a time when reality and illusion collide.
Pita brings in his regular collaborators, composer Frank Moon and designer Yann Seabra. Together they plunge deep into this physical, psychological and yearning masterpiece.
