Jenson Dance presents
Sketch Mythology 2019

Performed/Modeled by Matt Jenson and Laura Selle Virtucio
Music performed live by Karen Majewicz
and Special Guest Lars Lee

Gods, goddesses, and fantastic creatures from Greek mythology abound, and YOU get to draw them! Modern dance blends with figure drawing to create a unique performance experience.

Throughout the six dances in Act I, you’ll get to warm up by drawing a series of 1, 2, and 4 minute poses. Act II will be one long pose. No previous drawing experience required, and paper and pencils will be provided. You are welcome to bring their own art supplies (nothing too messy, please).

Don’t remember much about Medusa? Never heard the story of Orpheus and Eurydice? Who the heck is Ares? Don’t worry…we’ve got you covered! Before the performance, you can stroll through a gallery of drawings and paintings that introduce you to the characters. A brief synopsis of each myth will tell you all you need to enjoy the show.

This performance contains a whole bunch of nudity. For audiences 18+

Trigger warning: Please note that, as with most Greek myths, the stories included in this show are full of potentially distressing elements such as war, decapitation, deaths of loved ones, and sexual situations

Sketch Mythology was created Matt Jenson and Laura Selle Virtucio in collaboration with many artists:
Choreographers/Directors: Maria Asp, Annie Enneking, Lise Houlton, and Marcia Keegan
Composers: Joel Arpin, Marya Hart, Eric Jensen, and Michelle Kinney
Performers/Musicians: Lars Lee, Karen Majewicz

The third was commissioned from resident playwright James Lundy. We have presented several of his works in the past to enthusiastic response. We are omitting descriptions of the plays as to do so could spoil surprises in the scripts. Please join us for an enjoyable evening of one acts.
