Fitzgerald & Stapleton return to transform the Underground Theater into a shamanic space of solace and redemption in the world premiere of WAGE, — a performance dedicated to the memory of relationships that perished in its making and a tribute to those that survived. The Irish choreographers and dancers will flay you with the wild food of dreams, families, and the virgin Mary Byrne — to create a work that is the artists' metaphor for the resilience and ephemerality of life.
Amid a vast mass of concrete the dance is at first only a visitor emerging from the top of each staircase, a troll beneath a bridge writing letters to change a past as illusory as her imagined future – but by the end all will find oneness in the buoyant ejaculation – Why is this night different from every other night? My heart is ready.
Figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics tell us that in 2010, women who worked full time in wage and salary jobs had median weekly earnings of $669. This represented 81 percent of men's median weekly earnings — $824. In respect of this, tickets are offered for female-identified audience members at a 19-percent discount.
WAGE is a co-production of the Abrons Arts Center and Project Arts Centre Dublin, and is generously supported by Culture Ireland.
TICKETS: $12 Female-identified, $15 Male-identified
