Created specifically for ODC’s B.Way Theater with an all Bay Area cast, Of Iron and Diamonds V3: Alone Together flips the orientation of the proscenium, placing the audience on the stage and the performers in the seats. Other-worldly dreamscapes give way to volcanic dance numbers, ranging from the audacious to the familiar, combining Galasso’s signature cinematic approach with a riveting score by composer Dave Cerf.
Alone Together is Galasso’s third installment of her multi-chapter performance series, Of Iron and Diamonds, based on Boccaccio’s Decameron. Each chapter is uniquely site- and cast-specific, revealing a sharply present, whimsical take on this seminal literary work, while remaining reflective of a contemporary approach to performance rooted in the avant-garde.
