I wake up, put on my face, I go to work. I come home, watch Jeopardy, brush my teeth, go to bed.
It isn’t easy to intertwine the monotony of the daily grind into a ballet, but audience members were treated to the complexities of human need during Wonderbound’s “Love” this past weekend. The first act began with Artistic Director Garrett Ammon’s 2009 production of When the Power Goes Out, set to the poetry of Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop’s Michael J. Henry and accompanied by pianist Heather Leathwood. It’s a piece that touches upon the honeymoon phase, the ache of observation only loneliness, and the shift in dynamics over time between two people.
