Tiny Luxuries is a dance-theater piece based upon Clarice Lispector’s 1977 novella, The
Hour of the Star. Through the rich combination of text and movement, a visceral study
of relationships and the quest for happiness emerge. An eccentric cast of characters
construct the identity of Macabéa, a poor typist from the slums who longs to be pretty.
Will she find her voice to contribute to her own existence before time runs out?
The performance is free and open to the public. If you would like to reserve a ticket beforehand, it is a $5 donation.
