Talking Dance: Michael Lupu and David Gordon



Michael Lupu, Senior Dramaturg at the Guthrie Theater, talks with choreographer/theater director/writer David Gordon about Gordon’s reimagining of Bertolt Brecht’s rarely performed music-theater work Roundheads and Pointheads. Gordon’s production animates and adulterates Brecht’s pre-Holocaust parable with an English translation by Michael Finegold (Village Voice) and a cast including performance artist John Kelly, Academy Award-winning actress Estelle Parsons, actress/dancer Valda Setterfield, and pianist/composer Gina Leishman.
