From Louise Kennedy of the Boston Globe:
Dances are made of dreams at PrometheusMore...
CAMBRIDGE -- Writhing tubes of translucent fabric, shimmering in turquoise and brown and gold, inch across the floor. A soldier tosses and twirls his rifle like a majorette’s baton. Couples pair up, part, run, pair off again. A woman sings.
It’s the stuff of dreams -- or, more precisely, of “Dreams,” a multimedia work by Prometheus Dance that has its premiere tonight at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center.
and from Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:
Troupe’s ‘Dreams’ become realityMore...
In 1911, Sigmund Freud wrote, “Anyone who for some time applies himself to the investigation of dreams, and takes a special interest in them, usually dreams more during that period than at any other; he remembers his dreams more easily and more frequently.”
If Freud was right, then the members of Prometheus Dance must be dreaming nonstop these nights. The group’s newest evening-length work, simply titled “Dreams,” is a set of 25 short dances based on recent dreams of company members and co-artistic directors Tommy Neblett and Diane Arvanites-Noya. When it opens tonight at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Prometheus’ loyal following will be either delighted or shocked, because both Neblett and Arvanites-Noya describe the work as “a radical departure.”
