Looking forward 2019-2020…

NWPL ensemble members are busy rehearsing and researching several new works. Watch for news of the ensemble’s new devised work, tentatively called Temptation, loosely based on Maeterlinck’s Pelleas and Melisande and other works exploring the nature of desire, wanting, madness, and the underlying psychological and biological mechanisms driving longing, romance, and obsession. Work to premiere in May 2020.
