Notes From A SEANCE

Cowles Center for Dance and The Performing Arts

April 19 and 20, 2019 - 8:00pm

In a world of spiritualists & charlatans, two women vie for leadership of their community. One is an established & experienced leader. The other, a gifted & visionary newcomer.

Notes from a Séance, a mock Gothic romance, zeros in on fake spiritualists and features Shapiro & Smith’s signature biting wit and breathtaking physicality.

The New York Times calls Notes from a Séance “quirky and sharp-witted.” Amidst hysteria and hypnotism, frauds and true-believers, Notes from a Séance is an otherworldly experience.

When Notes from a Séance premiered at the Joyce Theater in NYC, our Artistic Associate Laura Selle Virtucio was a college student apprenticing with Shapiro & Smith Dance and was part of the road crew that made the 1999 show happen. Oh, the stories she can tell…
