“This past weekend was the second production from new indie performance company, Divergence Vocal Theater. The 10th Muse was a musical, theatrical, poetic meditation on love, heartbreak, and other such manipulations of Eros. Artistic director, Misha Penton, pulled from Berlioz, Gounod, and Boulanger (among others) for music. For text, she appropriated text from Sapho and also 4 poems from neoNuma poet, Jill Alexander Essbaum. Throw in some modern dance choreography by Toni Leago Valle, and you begin to get an idea of how fully packed a one-hour performance from DVT can be.
If this interdisciplinary approach to performance piques your interest in the least, I recommend you head over to DVT’s website and subscribe to their email list. There are sure to be new and exciting things developing in the months to come and you won’t want to miss out.” By Neil Ellis Orts for Neonuma Arts.
