We Spar Down the Lane
Premiere: September 2005
We Spar Down the Lane is a hybrid work combining dance and clowning. In a playfully exaggerated portrait of human nature, ﬁve female characters with opposing agendas struggle for both power and acceptance. The contentious crew fashions a fantasy of music videos, psychic breakdowns and a puzzle of impossible rules.
“Nichole Canuso’s dances have a presence, a right thereness in the moment… like a great slowed down slapstick routine.”
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
