-Generating cultural dialogues through original artistic work-



Salome Project

This theatrical performance piece is born out Citizen Arts co-artistic director Meg Araneo's scholarly research into late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century cultural infatuations with the archetype of the biblical dancing girl. A devised work, the Salome Project considers the figure of the dancing girl as a cultural location where social and political ideas of a specific historical context can be actively explored through text, music, and dance.  After engaging in several workshops of the piece over the last year, it will be presented as a work in progress in Summer 2018 in Brooklyn, New York.
