Maureen Fleming’s B. MADONNA features text by David Henry Hwang and music by Philip Glass (performed live by pianist Bruce Brubaker), original accordion music by Guy Klucevsek, and Taiko drumming by Kaoru Watanabe. This beautiful, multimedia meditation on ‘miracles’ juxtaposes Fleming’s new and repertory works with three-dimensional video projections designed by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo.
“B. Madonna at La MaMa continually transcends theatrical expectations and constructs a state of perpetual presence… not unlike the effect of viewing the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls… [Maureen Fleming] moves with the skill and the force of nature…” (New York Theatre Review)
“Amazing . . . a wondrous choreographic metamorphosis.” (The New York Times)
This video DVD, was created through a series of performances intended to embody Fleming's original choreography for stage. Directed by Maureen Fleming and created through a creative exchange involving light designer and cinematographer Christopher Odo, this encapsulates Maureen Fleming's original visual art theater.
