Our Unfortunate Deaths (2010)

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2010)
Choreography: Sharon Moore
3 dancers
36 minutes

In a desperate plea to reverse the state of their dwindling lives, three women (once a royal sisterhood) use their beauty, force and strategic games on one another to stay connected. Their only pleasure is the passion in which they take part in their old world games and long ago manners. Part fable, part murder mystery, part physical marathon “Our Unfortunate Deaths” is a story of survival...however messy that may be.
