Dancing off the page and onto the stage

Susan Dibble gives a behind-the-scenes look at 'Tea and Flowers, Purity and Grace'

Theater enthusiasts can mark their calendars for “Tea and Flowers, Purity and Grace,” a Brandeis Theater Company dance play running Nov. 20-23.

Edith Wharton’s novel “The House of Mirth” was Susan Dibble’s inspiration in creating and choreographing the performance. The Louis, Frances and Jeffrey Sachar Professor of Creative Arts brings the characters to life in this Tableaux Vivant-inspired work of 24 dances.

In this BrandeisNOW preview, Dibble talks about the show during a rehearsal.
