Inspired by the career of Ruth St. Denis, Ruth Doesn’t Live Here Anymore strives to question the acts of cultural appropriation, representation and transmission through “oriental” dance. Accompanied by a live accordion and violin-driven score performed by Guy Klucevsek, this Philadelphia premiere sweeps across an array of metaphorical hints and extravagant fabrics. Integrating set, video, music, costumes, Ruth is Lionel Popkin’s most complex and ambitious work to-date.
This tour of Lionel Popkin is made possible by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and made possible in part by support from the National Performance Network (NPN) Performance Residency Program. For more information: www.npnweb.org.
