Boiling Point Players presents its season-opener: Positions by Daniel Ciba, running October 19-28 at The Beacon Theatre.
Positions is a fictional imagining of the life of the painter Edgar Degas, told by twelve of the dancers he painted. Their stories echo the history of the theater; each voice desperately struggling to present her position, as one by one they vanish from the stage.
Ranging from the beautiful to the violent, these “paintings” construct a fragmented depiction of the power and chaos enacted by artists on their creations.
Directed by Autumn Clack and Ruth McCleskey.
