“Refreshingly, the artists who shaped She/Three refrain from standard re-creations of [Shakespeare’s] key female characters. Instead, they address larger themes, such as thwarted love or psychological confinement that emerge from these familiar literary figures.” –Chicago Tribune
Premiered: Ruth Page Foundation, 2007
She/Three is an evening length choreographic triptych that muses on the shared and distinct qualities of three Shakespearean women – Juliet, Lady Macbeth, and Ophelia – through the point of view of three different artists- Brian Jeffery, Marianne Kim, and Peter Carpenter- utilizing dance, performance video, and theater. The lead artists, along with Lucky Plush Artistic Director Julia Rhoads, share a distinct history of collaboration through their affiliation with XSIGHT! Performance Group, a dance-theater company that was a unique and vital part of Chicago’s dance community from 1985-2000.
