July 29: The Purple Flower

Direction and Choreography by Dr. Monica White Ndounou, John Heginbotham, in substantial collaboration with all THEA 10.57 participants.

The third and final week sees them share the development of work in incubation with Dartmouth faculty and students based on Marita Bonner's one-act play The Purple Flower. Written in 1928, this surrealist experimental drama pushes the boundaries of theatrical staging. 

The Dance Theater of Harlem residency is funded in part by Claire Foerster and Daniel S. Bernstein 1987, the Arthur J. 1903 and Nellie Z. Cohen Fund, and the Nathan W. Pearson 1932 and Sons Fund.
