Loosely based on the story of Tristan and Isolde, L E A V E S is a short, physical exploration of the oldest romantic tragedy in the world.
C&G’s version of this story follows a young woman (“Dot”) and a young man (“Dash”) through their journey together — from waking up, to discovering each other, falling in love, being separated, individually crumbling, and finally, the nothingness that inevitably accompanies longing — the empty part of the heart.
Originally workshopped in November 2016 as a part of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre’s performance series, “The Royal We.”
