SYNOPSIS

When a married woman starts an affair in her NYC pied-a-terre, she discovers it is haunted by Spirits. Trapped by their own violent past, the Spirits try to stop this affair from escalating. Past informs the present as the cycle repeats itself to a dramatic conclusion.  

How far will you go to keep the one you love?

HISTORY

SHADOWS was born between a collaboration of playwright and choreographer, using dance as an equal form of narrative to the book. The dances either tell of past encounters, reveal parallel emotions with the main characters, or foreshadow events. In addition, we have two main female composer/lyricists who give this musical a unique voice by alternating from hauntingly poetic, alternative dance music to emotional, character driven songs. Along with our third composer, the score creates a modern complexity by using music to set the mood of the characters inner selves. Also, we use Kabuki style staging in order to create the world of the supernatural. It's a 6 character musical, 2 actors and 4 dancers, with 2 crew/dancers to be the Kabuki presence.
