The Lucy Poems is a series of choreographic works by Deborah Lohse, which symbolize the anguish of sympathy and the horrors clinical psychosis. Like the series of lyric poems by Wordsworth to which the title refers, such disassociative "fits of passion" are alternately watched and lived. The highly aestheticized language of ballet is coerced to speak physical ugliness. In a series of disturbing iterations, the classical line curls back upon itself, the beauty of bodies contorts into the dispossessed stances and gestures that express mental illness.
