Mother-Son(days), premiered Dec. 2011 at Miami Open Stage
Choreography: Pioneer Winter
Diary entries: Susan Winter and Pioneer Winter
Spoken Word Artist: Marie Whitman
Dancers: Ana Bolt, Pioneer Winter
Mother-Son(days) looks at the parallel lives of a mother and her son through actual diary entries composed at very different times. The mother’s diary entries are taken from when she was a teenager of seventeen years-old; the ten year-old son’s entries are taken shortly after the time of his mother’s death. Both mom and son, separated by time and terminal illness, reflect similar personalities, fears, and even some humor.
Performances of Mother-Son(days) include: Miami Open Stage (2011), THE FIELD Miami (2012), The Daniel Lewis Miami Dance Sampler (2012), and the Florida Dance Festival, Tampa, FL (2012)
*This footage is from the April 27, 2012 performance of Mother-Son(days) in the Daniel Lewis Miami Dance Sampler at Little Haiti Cultural Center, Miami, FL.
