Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Its an age-old story: Boy is committed to insane asylum; boy meets schizophrenic girl in insane asylum; boy and girl perform interpretive dance moves and fall in love. David and Lisa is a story that, sans the dance moves, has been told in many formats, first as a well-regarded novel, then as an Oscar-nominated 1962 film, and finally as a stage play. In its current incarnation, the story of the two mentally ill lovebirds is called An Unusual Love Story David+Lisa and has been transformed by Scorpius Dance Theatre into a fairy tale told in contemporary movement and set to original music by Kris Hill (of Phoenix band Drunken Immortals) and Ryan Breen (Back Ted N-Ted).
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: May 15. Continues through May 25, 2008
