Edith and Jenny

Edith and Jenny

“[Rogoff’s choreography] penetrates past muscle and bone right to the women’s spirit…”
– Apollinaire Scherr, Newsday, on Christina Olson: American Model

Interwined through Rogoff’s signature choreography, performers Claire Danes and Ariel Rogoff Flavin explore the intimacy that has marked their life-long friendship.

Danes and Flavin encounter their eleven year-old selves on screen, captured in their respective film debuts, Claire as Edith in Dreams of Love, and Ariel as Jenny in Coyote Mountain. Rites of passage unfold in fragments revealing the complexities of two fictional families. The lines between screen and stage, life and art, are blurred as Edith and Jenny, Danes and Flavin, form an alliance, stepping through and beyond their films and the fates of their families.

Approximate running time: 60 minutes
