Mythologies
April 30, 2016 • 7:30 pm • New York
First Presbyterian Church (Great Hall)

Mythologies is a dramatic, evening-length work for music, dance and spoken text based on the novel Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee. Coetzee’s novel takes place on the frontier between a colonial empire and the native-inhabited wilderness, exploring the ambiguous relationship between a local official and a native woman. In this production, the words of the novel–written from the first-person perspective of the official–are interpreted in a polyphonic, overlapping style by two female vocalists. The myths, fears and assumptions that animate the action are gradually revealed and begin to take on archetypal proportions. The music is sparse and asynchronous with the spoken text and choreography, resulting in a subtle, many-voiced texture that examines and subverts hierarchical relationships between the performing forces.
