The Yellow Wallpaper and Attic Room

Show Information

Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble remounts its September 2003 production of “The Yellow Wallpaper.” Based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s gripping 1890 short story, this new interpretation will be positioned as tale of a 2021 post-pandemic landscape. When one woman in the throes of postpartum depression also battles with her own rapidly vanishing sanity, her physician husband gives her the “rest cure.” As she retires to her bedroom, she becomes hypnotically fixated on the yellow wallpaper patterns that eventually take on the forms of other trapped women. These women reflect her depression and confinement through both monologues and modern dance as she hypnotically follows the patterns in the paper. The familiar feeling of mental and physical isolation will leave audiences embracing the freedom of a world still reeling from the effects of COVID-19. A split bill with ReDance Group, “ The Attic Room” is an intimate dance story of escape and desire. The dance theatre work reveals the thin line between resignation and hope. Images unfold through sharp dancing and poetic text in a space filled with the forgotten memories of the past.
