Marika Brussel's House of Names

Marika Brussel's House of NamesChoreographer Marika Brussel announces the streaming performance of her new work, House of Names: an evening-length contemporary ballet.

Following the success of her ballet about homelessness, From Shadows (ODC Theater, October 2017), Choreographer Marika Brussel announces today the streaming performance and world premiere of her new work, House of Names: an evening-length contemporary ballet reshaping the narratives of women and mythology.

House of Names will consist of four original pieces, all focusing on women in biblical and mythological stories: Lot's Wife, Cassandra, La Llorona and Miriam. Brussel will be exploring these stories with a contemporary eye: Lot's Wife as a modern immigration story Cassandra in the #metoo era, La Llorona as a woman haunted by her post-partum psychosis. And Miriam, a prophet and leader. Collaborating with composer Carla Lucero, Marika Brussel will delve deeply into these stories, making them new and relevant.
