For the Love of Will; March 1 & 2, 2019
The versatility of Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company demonstrates their movement mettle as they partner with the extremely talented and engaging rap artist Devon Glover, aka The Sonnet Man in their latest production: For the Love of Will.
Performing live his rap versions of ten of William Shakespeare’s love sonnets, The Sonnet Man connects William Shakespeare’s work to audiences of all ages all around the world, and partnering with Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company will bring his work to life in a whole new realm of audience entertainment.
Utilizing the sonnets along with some of Shakespeare’s most famous idioms, For the Love of Will is a story that revolves around the influence of technology on our relationships as we follow a couple who fall in love, and struggle under common influencers such as jealousy and doubt while we poke a bit of fun at the chasing of imagery we see on various means of social media. In Shakespeare’s time, although far from the invention of such digital gadgetry, there were these same inner struggles of chasing imagery, but he always concludes that the authentic love between us, whether it is the love of a partner, a friend, or our families, that love is the grandest prize of all, and we all need to remember to look up from our gadgets and into the eyes of each other.
