Gunther und Gertrude

A romance
Choreography: Sarah Hixon
Music: Gute Nacht, F. Schubert
Lighting: J Lillian Gray

"Gunther und Gertrude" is a whimsical duet for two awkward bug-like creatures.  It is the fruition of movement exploration in the studio in which we focused on what kind of movement might still arise from a very arduous physical position.  Despite their restrained stance and limited movement, the two characters in this work tell the story of a tragic yet comical romance.  The intentionally bizarre movement is juxtaposed with the highly Romantic lieder from Schubert's Winterreise cycle.
