Talk about Martha Clarke

The Joyce Theater's DANCE TALKS presents

Martha Clarke on Angle Reapers

November 21, 6pm
Martha Clarke says that the making of Angel Reapers was a "labor of love." It has taken Clarke and her collaborator playwright Alfred Uhry seven years to create and produce this dance theater work based on the Shakers. Clarke, a New Englander, felt an affinity to the minimalist Shaker aesthetic, and was fascinated by the repressed community founded by "Mother Ann" Lee. The work is described as "a stirring and dramatic blend of shaker songs, modern dance, and theater about forbidden sex and unchanneled lust in New England’s 18th century Shaker community." In a video illustrated evening, Gideon Lester (Director of Columbia University's Arts Collaboration Lab) converses with Clarke, examining the ideas that make up this new work.
