In Sarah's Shadow
About In Sarah's Shadow
Part History Rewritten, part Dance Pop Drama, In Sarah’s Shadow: The Eleonora Duse Story follows late 19th century phenomenon Eleonora Duse on her quest to be the greatest actor who ever lived. Battling the intensifying pressures of celebrity, rivalry, and romance, Eleonora fights for her unique approach to life and art.
Though in her time Duse was widely regarded, history has all but erased her. The more bombastic Sarah Bernhardt is held up as the goddess of the theatre of her time.
In this unique collaboration, writer/director Olivia Lilley and choreographer Kelly Anderson take back Eleanora's legacy for a 21st century audience, restoring her reputation as one of the first modern artists.
