Performing Arts Group ‘Scheherazade’ is a performance team that combines many different genres such as music, visual arts, media, dance, and theater. They develop non-verbal performance works under the themes of world-famous masterpiece paintings. ‘Scheherazade’ expresses the painters’ use of spatiality and underlying meaning of the work into a stage performance through the use of media and bodily expression.
This special program <I FEEL YOU>, inspired by Edvard Munch’s “Jealousy,” explores the powerful and uncontrollable emotions of jealousy, distrust, and envy.
The story is about a person who is extremely jealous of his/her lover; especially when they suspect that the lover will fall in love with someone else. A person’s jealousy can cause aggression, obsessive behaviors, and can even lead to violence. ‘Scheherazade’ regards this emotion as fascinating–impenetrable, hateful, even pitiful–and expresses the powerful and complex energies through body, dance, sound, and motion.
Admission is free, but RSVP is required.
