Choreographer Jenny McAllister, who works out of San Francisco, has created a highly unusual and interesting dance production inspired by Finnegans Wake, titled “A Wake.” The production loosely follows the plot of the Wake and includes a diverse range of accompanying choral music and some less standard selections including music by Tom Waits. Leopold Bloom even makes an appearance. Sections of the Wake are spoken by the dancers, but others are represented through dance, and the setting has changed from early twentieth century Ireland to 1980’s and 1990’s America. The show premiered in early October at the ODC Theater in San Francisco. Follow this link for more information.
