LempChoreography: Jessica RuhlinCast: Emma Rose Beigel, Abigail Crowell, Christine Fortin, Audrey Robson"The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of a burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into the heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?" -Milan KunderaThe piece explores the rise and fall of a German immigrant family who at the height of their power, became St Louis' most notorious beer barons. As legend has it, either the Lemp family itself or the house attached to the brewery is cursed, resulting in four family suicides across three generations in what is now one of America's most famous haunted landmarks, the Lemp Mansion. The two movements juxtapose the unifying human life force of gravity as it pertains to movement, connections, and choices.
