In lyrical, sculptural transcendence, Maureen Fleming invents surreal movement poetry, curving her body into shapes of shattering beauty. Fleming's new multimedia creation, B. Madonna, features text by David Henry Hwang and music by Philip Glass (performed live by pianist Bruce Brubaker), original accordion music by Guy Klucevsek, and taiko drumming by Kaoru Watanabe. This beautiful multimedia meditation on miracles juxtaposes Fleming's new and repertory work with 3-D video projections designed by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo.
