The O’Shaughnessy Presents
Saturday, Oct 26 | 7:30 pm
Inspired by the lush symbolism of Irish poet William Butler Yeats, internationally acclaimed dance artist Maureen Fleming invents surreal movement poetry, curving into shapes of shattering beauty. Fleming juxtaposes her singular movement with geometric moving sculptures and brilliant lighting by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo.
Featuring live music by renowned Irish composer and violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire (founding member of the Frames) and original uilleann pipes by James Mahon, with pianist Bruce Brubaker performing music of Philip Glass.
Exploring the “immortal waters” of the mystical feminine, Wildflowers asks: “Is immortality an elusive paradigm or present in the here and now?”
“She seemed to transcend the material world and enter a realm of pure spirit…a wondrous choreographic metamorphosis.”—The New York Times on Maureen Fleming
“A classically trained head, a transient folk soul and an indomitable traditional heart.”—The Irish Times on Colm Mac Con Iomaire
We have a special pricing system for this production. To better provide for equity and inclusion in our seating, your seat location is not determined by the price you pay.
You decide how much to pay for your ticket ($34, $30, or $24) and the system will assign the best seat available at that price. There are tickets at all price levels throughout the theater, so the relative quality of the seat will be determined more by how early you purchase your ticket than by what you choose to pay.
A production of this scale always costs more than ticket sales alone can cover, so we ask you to consider purchasing your tickets at the highest price you feel comfortable paying. Thank you!
