Description

Eleonora is an intense performance of dance, music and projections where two stories of passion and redemption are told upon the stage.

Edgar Allan Poe and Clive Barker are writers known for their vivid imaginations and macabre stylings. Both have an undercurrent of great passion in their elaborate stories.

In telling the story of Eleonora, it is important to note that this is Poe’s only story where love is rewarded and the hero is redeemed at the end of his tale. Unique and stirring, this passionate play is set to dance and theatrics by the careful direction of David Wilkinson’s Astra Dance Company.

Opening the evening of passion is a poem of Clive Barker’s entitled

“I Dreamed I Spoke Another’s Language,” a beautiful piece of love and longing, told by a living legend of modern fiction.
