Colin Gee and Angie Smalis appear in two distinct works as part of Abrons’ Travelogues dance series curated by Laurie Uprichard.

Chaplet of Roses (2014) is drawn from a 15th century fragmentary tapestry from the Netherlands, “Honor Making a Chaplet of Roses,” featuring an allegory of courtly love told through the simultaneous action of four characters. Created in Ireland, the work explores a contemporary interpretation of the allegory as a notion of individual and community morality, by framing shifts between public and private life.

They Go Out in Joy (2016), is a series of performance portraits drawn from photographs of Irish emigrants taken just prior to their departure from Cobh, Ireland in the 1920’s, when Cobh was the major port of emigration. Set against the background of present day Cobh, Gee and Smalis portray all the roles, shifting between the public and private lives of each persona at a single moment of pause—imagining what has just happened or is about to happen.
