About the event

Preview of Purgatorio at Shakespeare and Company: Purgatorio follows an ensemble of troubled spirits dancing to salvation in Club Purgatorio, a surrealist techno dreamscape. Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divina Commedia and developed in Tuscany, this devised physical theatre piece explores desire, dependency and divinity through ecstatic movement. It invites the audience to press where it hurts, live their darkest fantasies and then to dance it off after. It features the work of 15 young professional theatre artists, including 9 performers and 6 members of the production staff. Shakespeare and Company is generously hosting this preview as a capstone presentation demonstrating Frances Rippy's directing training this summer under Tina Packer, Kate Kohler-Amory, and Shelia Bandyopadhyay.
