MRS. MARGARETH

2013

Ms. Margarethwith excerpts from "Monger", is an adaptation of Barak Marshall for the Cisne Negro Dance Company. "Monger" is a dance-theater work for 10 dancers and tells the story of a group of employees, trapped in the basement of an abusive mistress's house. In this work, Marshall's movement is physical, sharp, fast, with contemporary ethnic arguments that are highly emotive, visual and theatrical.

In the musical score of Monger, Barak combines elements of gypsy and southeastern European music, through classical music and rock. Monger explores the dynamics of power, hierarchy, free will, and the compromises that are necessary to survive. The structure of the narrative piece is drawn from various sources, including the life and work of Bruno Shultz and Jean Genet's "The Maids." Barak Marshall
