About the Show
June 23-25, 8:00, 2017
Set design and live choreographed painting by Paul Herwig, score by Craig Harris.
The Sage and Ivey Award-winning Off-Leash Area explores the existential complexity of adult orphanhood, inspired by Co-Artistic Director Jennifer Ilse’s personal experiences as an adult orphan. The show explores the universality of grief and death, and specifically the intense transition into this life stage which we all expect to reach when all of our parents have gone. The beautiful, ritualistic memorial speaks to the intricacies of our family relationships, the complexities of grief, the voyage from guilt to gratitude, and finally to a freedom of the spirit. The cast of 20 local dancers have all lost their parents, and, in collaboration with grief counselors and local health care institutions, will conduct movement workshops with members of the public who have lost close family members. Principal dancers are Karla Grotting, Ray Terrill, Christine Maginnis, and Jennifer Ilse; other performers include Mike Cohn, a 2015 VSA Emerging Artist.
