Abstract

The stage director of Sunset, Maxine Doyle, notes that she was partly inspired by the Classical story of Persephone, who was separated from her mother, the goddess Demeter. I would however suggest that another Greek myth provides a better metaphor for this production, namely that of Echo, scorned by her lover and so condemned to call out from a distance in the hope of reaching the lost object of her affections. Sunset was scored by Rachael Dease, and produced by Strut Dance in association with Tura New Music.
