Recluse

Recluse is an inquiry into the psychic space of seclusion where inspiration and obsession intermix. This dance theater work developed out of a two-week artist residency at Ragdale that Carrie Hanson and Doug Stapleton took in 2005. Ragdale, an artists' community, provides a quiet haven for artists to immerse themselves in their work. Sources for movement and text were drawn from the work and lives of Henry David Thoreau, Pontormo, and other artists and writers who contemplated the inspiration of solitude.
