Dance Now! Miami returns with two encore performances on the adult-themed interpretation of Luigi Pirandello’s 1921 play, Six Characters in Search of an Author. In the original play, six fictional characters unravel the veil of reality as they confront a stage troupe about their own incomplete portrayal. The interaction breaks down the relationships involving authors, their creations, and the role of theater performers in bringing stories to life. Scored by Federico Bonacossa for violin and two guitars, original choreography from artistic directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten expands on the play’s themes of identity and the ways we play-act ourselves, pushing the meta-envelope to the P.O. box of self-awareness without uttering a single word.
Colony Theatre hosts Dance Now! Miami’s examination of performance. A Paramount movie house at its inception in 1935, the theatre recently emerged from a three-year restoration to its original art-deco glory. Though the overall effect is one of a lost, golden age, the building was furnished with modern necessities such as advanced lighting and sound systems to enhance productions and enable shadow-puppet dance parties.
