The Pilot Dance Project completed its fifteenth season with an original narrative dance work choreographed by Heather VonReichbauer.
Edgar Allan Poe was a man haunted by death from an early age and lived a life filled with love and loss. Heather VonReichbauer’s new work for the Pilot Dance Project, Madness, Memories, and Woe: A Fantastical Journey Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, explores an alternate reality as seen through the mind of the troubled author; one in which real-life characters from Poe’s life mingle and merge with characters from his works. This full-length evening of dance explores Poe’s love of the macabre and brings to life Poe’s themes of madness, loss, betrayal, and the passage of time.
