Stealing Fire

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2016)

Choreography: Emily Gualtieri
3 dancers | 26 minutes

Stealing Fire is a look inside Pandora's box. A common saying that implies performing an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have severely detrimental consequences. Temptation, curiosity of the unknown, the forbidden, the potentially devastating aftermath of the actions we choose, and the act of defiance… How do these elements manifest themselves in our physical body and, thus, in our relationships? Stealing Fire unveils the beautiful and the hideous.
