The all-too-mysterious inner workings of the mind are transformed into a trio of contemporary dance works in Ballet 5:8's mesmerizing Mirrors of the Mind, presented at Madison Street Theatre in Oak Park. This evening program features the premiere of artistic director Julianna Slager's Interplay imagines the characters of Wisdom and Folly, who embody the internal dialogue of the heart in a duel of reason versus passion. In Preston Miller's And Mercy, the thoughts and intentions of the heart are communicated through intense emotion and continuous movement. And Slager's Sigao Ekklesia juxtaposes movement and sound to explore a topic that's dear to the hearts and minds of many: church.
Running time: Approximately 100 minutes, including two intermissions.
