"Tania Isaac walks as if sand and water coursed through her veins…Isaac demonstrates a keen eye for place and a sensibility for setting evocative scenes that realistically ground the abstractions of her dance."
- Lisa Traiger, The Washington Post
Featuring the stunning, vibrant movement style of St. Lucia-born choreographer Tania Isaac, stuporwoman is an operatic and humorous fairytale of motherhood and parenting in the twenty-first century. Generated through a series of workshops with women from a diverse range of racial and economic backgrounds, stuporwoman offers a tongue-in-cheek, serious yet satirical peek at multigenerational perspectives on work, family, conflict, and the often absurd results of balancing it all. With original text written by Guggenheim Award-winning playwright Bridget Carpenter, and live music by Philadelphia Opera Company violinist Heather Zimmerman, stuporwoman navigates culture, class, and the expectations of motherhood in an interdisciplinary work of dance, music, and verse for audiences of all ages.
