Accompanied by the nationally acclaimed voices of Boston’s own all-woman vocal group the Lorelei Ensemble, Shannon Gillen’s newly commissioned work for Boston Dance Theater "On the Verge” hones in on four divergent voices. Gillen blends her interest in the theatrical devices of cinematic with physical, risk-taking choreography. In "On the Verge" Gillen creates a temporal landscape that is at once full-bodied and reflective of womanhood.
