Preview: Bibliography of Love

By Julie Mullins · May 26th, 2009 · Fringe

Virginia Woolf’s sweeping novel, Orlando, has been referred to as the longest love letter in history. It’s also the inspiration behind Jan Street Dance Theatre’s Bibliography of Love, a multi-faceted exploration of gender transformations of the past and present — of the Bloomsbury Group and of the quintet of performers.

Artistic Director Christopher Gilbert says he found that group’s literary and artistic exchanges fascinating, especially in the midst of Victorian England’s repressive society. Through vignettes of eclectic contemporary dance interlaced with original and quoted spoken word, the group addresses the question, “What are you willing to give up for love?”

Performed at Gabriel's Corner June 1, 3, 4 and 6 (see map of Fringe venues here)
