A Tribute To Della Davidson

A Tribute To Della Davidson

By Granada Artist Ellen Bromberg & Sideshow Physical Theatre

May 31-June 3

Main Theatre, Wright Hall

The Department of Theatre and Dance presents a tribute to our beloved Professor Della Davidson who passed away in March: the world premiere of and the snow fell softly on all the living and the dead… by Granada Artist-in-Residence Ellen Bromberg followed by choreography and performances by Sideshow Physical Theatre.

The title of and the snow fell softly on all the living and the dead… derives from the famous James Joyce poem, “The Dead.” Performers exist in vignettes as images that rise and fall in time and space, engaging ideas of life, beauty and loss. Visual elements, including live video of various perspectives onstage, play a large role in a meditative environment of changing light, forms and sound.

The piece was conceived as a staged installation by Della Davidson and Ellen Bromberg with choreography and media design by Ellen Bromberg in collaboration with Kegan Marling and the dancers.

The second half of the evening features performances celebrating the work of Della Davidson by Sideshow Physical Theatre members Eric Kupers, Kegan Marling, Kerry Mehling and Jane Schnorrenberg.

A Tribute to Della Davidson plays May 31 through June 3 in Main Theatre, Wright Hall.
