Presented in March of 1987, Richard III was presented in rotating rep with a modern dance piece BROTHERS KEEPER.

We felt the vital link joining the two pieces was a commentary on the deceitful ways people manipulate each other. Scenes were constructed in both shows to intertwine music and motion with the dance of life through it's myriad of primitive and untried choices. Everyday rituals.

I designed the set speak to both productions and a very simple rearrangement and removal of step units was all that was required for changeover.
