The Woman Who Refused to Dance - Shirley J. Thompson, Nadine Benjamin -Soprano
Date 01 December 2017
DescriptionTHE WOMAN WHO REFUSED TO DANCE is an opera from Shirley J. Thompson's series, HEROINES OF OPERA, which celebrates the narratives of extraordinary women in history that triumph in the face of the most profound adversity and overturns the operatic convention of femme fatales. The opera series is scored for solo singer, speaker, dancers/s, multi-media and orchestra.
The (Unknown) Woman on Captain Kimber's shipment of enslaved persons was punished for insubordination in 1792 when she refused to dance when ordered. She died from her injuries, but the opera shows her confounding power of transcendence.
