WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

For 40 years David Gordon has purposefully examined and expanded the line between theater and dance and pioneered the use of text and textual narrative in movement work. This project is a continuation into Gordon's recent explorations of the classics including recent productions of Dancing Henry Five based on Shakespeare's Henry V and Eugene Ionesco's The Chairs. Uncivil Wars is Bertold Brecht's play The Roundheads and The Pointheads (as translated by Michael Feingold), with material from Brecht's treatises on playwriting as well as from Hanns Eisler's thoughts on composing for the theater. The work explores ideas about inspiration, collaboration and the implications of readdressing historical works in the changed context of our present moment.
