Doug Varone continues a long exploration of the nature of art and inspiration with Chapters from a Broken Novel, an adventurous mash-up of segments, each based on a quote, an image, or an over-heard snippet of conversation. Created for eight dancers, and featuring music by composer David Van Tieghem, Chapters feels like a furtive, unplanned peek into an artist's daily journal, one that depicts human nature at its most vulnerable, expressive and poignant. Chapters from a Broken Novel is co-commissioned by San Francisco Performances.
