The Beloved (1948)

The Beloved was choreographed by Lester Horton in 1948 and presents a violent relationship between a minister and his wife cased by accusations of infidelity on the woman’s part.  Early modern dance was known for its inclusion of social protest and I strive to promote awareness of domestic violence through the performance of this work.  I staged this duet from Labanotation score on professional male dancer, Lonnie E. Davis and myself and live accompaniment was provided by Jane Frackenpohl.
