This evolving work is based on the theme -- desire and is inspired by the majestic beauty of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the goddess Diana, free-ranging thoughts, dancer dilemmas, personal potholes and the human urge to play. These eight dancers are meant to be viewed independently, are portable and are 3-8 minutes long. Jen & Joe's duet are part of an experimental video with videographer, Carmella Vassor of Wild Child Productions. Ms. Mulgrew intends to continue this investigation.
