The concession is kind of pricey, but it's a worthwhile contribution to a worthy cause.

Description

stuporwoman is an operatic and humorous fairytale of motherhood and parenting in the twenty-first century featuring the stunning, vibrant movement style of St. Lucia-born choreographer Tania Isaac. Generated through a series of workshops with women from a diverse range of racial and economic backgrounds, stuporwoman offers a tongue-in-cheek, serious yet satirical peek at multigenerational perspectives on work, family, conflict and the often absurd results of balancing it all. With original text written by Guggenheim Award-winning playwright Bridget Carpenter, and live music by Philadelphia Opera Company violinist Heather Zimmerman, stuporwoman navigates culture, class and the expectations of motherhood in an interdisciplinary work of dance, music, scenery and verse for audiences of all ages.

This project is partially supported by a grant from Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour; a program developed and funded by the Heinz Endowments; the William Penn Foundation; the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency; and The Pew Charitable Trusts; and administered by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation. This engagement is a DC Performing Arts Presenters Initiative project, which is made possible through funding by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.
