2017 PDP WOLF-IN-SKINS Dance/Opera Creative Residency with choreographer
CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS and composer GREGORY SPEARS
“Operatic elements tell the story while dance
explores the dreaminess of the mythology…it’s a visual feast.” - Merilyn
Jackson, Philadelphia Inquirer
If you were one of the lucky audience to see
the Philadelphia Dance Projects’ sold out performances of Wolf-In-Skins, Act 1 in 2013
you know how exciting this work is!
A PDP special residency will begin in 2017 and culminate
with a script in hand presentation in the Fall when some of those marvelous singers, wolves
and hounds, along with new puppets will return.
PDP has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for
a creative residency with choreographer, Christopher
Williams and composer Gregory Spears
to work towards finishing this wonderful dance opera.
“Dance and opera certainly have been blended over
the centuries, but not often with the sort of intensive interaction demanded by
[choreographer] Williams and composer Gregory Spears, both seemingly fearless
about striking out in new direction.” David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer
