"a woman's Place"
A dark story about five women placed in an insane asylum and their journey to break free from the constraints of an institutionalized society. Inspired by Wisconsin's first mental asylum, founded in 1860, this devised piece uses movement, text, and aerial work to weave a tale about a time when women were institutionalized for behaving in ways unacceptable to a male-dominated society. Devised by Kelly Coffey, co-directed by Don Russell and Kelly Coffey, aerial choreography by Andrea Burkholder featuring guest artists from Danceworks Performance Company, with original music by NINETEEN THIRTEEN.
