Street Salvation/ Nocturne


"Street Salvation" re-stages Duncan's "Nocturne" (1915) in a 21st century, everyday context. Opening on a prone body, invisible amongst busy passers-by, and performed in street clothes, the piece brings the choreography's depiction of desperation and the struggle for--and eventual possibility of--empathy, togetherness, and uplift into a familiar urban scene. Initially envisioned by Jennifer Sprowl, "Street Salvation" is performed in this recording by Sprowl and Valerie Durham in April 2017
