A DANCE – THEATRE OPERA BY DU YUN, MATTHEW MAGUIRE, AND PAUL WARNER

Please join us for a sneak preview of selections from Women: The War Within, a new dance-theatre opera with direction and musical staging by Paul Warner, a spring 2013 Princess Grace Foundation-USA Works in Progress resident artist at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

In this new multi-disciplinary work that explores the rise of female consciousness in the pursuit of power, four of the most powerful women in history meet: Empress Wu, the only female Empress of China, Cleopatra, the last Pharaoh of Egypt, Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize-winning activist of Burma, and Hillary Clinton, American stateswoman. The ancient ones are haunted by the murders and seductions by which they forged their path to power. Encountering their warlike ancestors in a parallel universe, how will Aung San Suu Kyi and Hillary Clinton confront the war within? How does power transform us?
