The Butterfly's Burden: Dance Inspired By Poetry Of Mahmoud Darwish

Category: Arts at MC

Published: Mar 2 2015 12:00AM

Poetry, written by a master, becomes a window into the soul of a people, a time, a place in the world. That's true of Robert Frost's America. True of Pushkin's Russia. So, too, is it true of Mahmoud Darwish, the Palestinian poet who, through his words, created a unique insight into the Palestinian experience. Words of deep passion and eloquence, of love bound and unbound, realized and denied. Over two weekends in March, Company E presents the world oremiere of an evening-length work built on the language of Darwish's collection, "The Butterfly's Burden." Created for Theatre 2 at Montgomery College's Cultural Arts Center, the work is based on collaboration between all the artists of the company, and centers on an original score by company member Gavin Stewart. For more on Company E visit:

March 6, 7 13 and 14 at 8 p.m;
