DanceWorks | DW195 | BoucharDanse - Histoire d'amour

Regular tickets:$28−$33.50 Student/Senior:$19−$22.50 NextSteps package price:$25−$30 Student/Senior package price:$17-$20 Flex Pass eligible:YES

Our undying search for love and understanding of its meaning is the basis for this full-length trio that marries dance and theatre. BoucharDanse invited five choreographers to engage with historical narratives on idealized love to illustrate, through movement and images, expressions of affection in various times. These were then used as diving boards into poignant and comical journeys for three timeless lovers. Histoire d’amour examines the essence of this ethereal feeling we cannot live without.
