Layla Means Night
LAYLA MEANS NIGHT
Serving up horrific melodrama as dance-theater divertissement, choreographer Rosanna Gamson and her company World Wide take on the tale of Scheherazade, the cunning bride from One Thousand and One Nights whose skills as a storyteller saved her from a murderous husband. Performed to a live score by master musicians Houman Pourmehdi and Pirayeh Pourafar, Layla Means Night employs hyped-up spectacle, 19th century projection techniques,enticements, misdirections and artful games of smoke-and-mirrors, to craft an intricate exploration of violence, complicity and our insatiable desire to be entertained.
