This three-part dance is linked by the underlying intense, physical presence of the central female character as she evolves from one transitory sense of being to another through imagination, dream, and nightmares.

“[A] dynamic take on a woman’s journey through three different states of dreaming and imagination.”
– Katherine Moore, Dance Informa

Produced while in residence with Dance Connecticut on October 2000, Prelude to Night was funded by The French Embassy of New York, The Florence Gould Foundation, and with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Set underwriting provided by The Grand Marnier Foundation.
