The Kind of Thing That Would Happen, a new piece by Olivia Sabee, at Washington DC’s Dance Place
The Kind of Thing That Would Happen asks the audience whether or not they believe what they are seeing and harks back to Aristotle’s precept of theater as making real not what has happened, but rather, the kind of thing that would happen. The performance—with choreography by Olivia Sabee, original sound designs by DeLesslin George-Warren, and new sets by Ben Levine—features choreography that ranges from happy-go-lucky dances to contemplative solo work set to a rhythmically driving score, as the enduring love of the main characters unfolds, interwoven with monologues from an inquisitive, insightful poetess.
