Choreographed in collaboration with Erica Rebollar, "Eurydice" views the myth of Orpheus from the woman's side. Orpheus has talked the god Hades into letting Eurydice return to the land of the living, on the condition that she not look into his eyes until they are free. But her freedom is bought at the cost of his domination--her very breath belongs to Orpheus. This dance questions the customary depiction of Eurydice as obedient and content, quietly following wherever Orpheus leads.
