A bit of the promotional copy I used for the show might give a better idea of what the show is about:
Sea levels are rising, trees are being ravaged, and jazz may be the only thing that can save our humanity from the Man of Steel. Dance on Bones is inspired by and structured around jazz music, riffing off of the folklore of the jazz scenes in St. Petersburg, Russia and New Orleans, Louisiana; creation myths; flooding cities; and the current environmental circumstances washing away our shores.
The staged reading was performed at Charlestown Working Theater in Boston as part of its Resident Lab series.
I'm looking forward to hopefully taking this show further along in the process and seeing what other opportunities spring up from the process of engaging this text.
What follows are several clips from our reading, and I think they give a good idea of what the experience was like of watching our presentation. The wonderful actors you'll see in these videos are Jamileh Alexandra, Avery Nelson Barger, and Ashley Risteen.
