Description: The always astounding MacArthur Award winner Martha Clarke teams up with Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Alfred Uhry to collaborate on an evening-length dance/theater/music piece about forbidden sex and unchanneled lust in New England's 18th century Shaker community. Inspired by the life of Ann Lee, founder of the Shaker movement, the piece envisions the hysteria of human passion gone awry. "Notable for its mesmerizing qualities... Angel Reapers is a beautifully wrought illustration of repression and freedom." Durham News and Observer
