ToDo ToDay: The Grand Parade! Jewish Nibbles!
Members of Massachusetts-based Double Edged Theater usually premiere their new pieces on the small farm where they live, but they’ll debut their latest movement-based work at Arena Stage. This new work tells the story of the 20th century and draws visual inspiration from the work of Russian modernist painter Marc Chagall. In The Grand Parade, Double Edged troupe members will follow the evolution of invention, from planes to cars to spaceships, and yes, they’ll express all of this while launching themselves into the air.
