The Maid and the Marmalade
In Stronach's visually striking dance theater work, "The Maid and the Marmalade", the stale office routine of an Editor and a Maid is interrupted by the arrival of a passionate red letter. The red letter unlocks a flood of emotions that upsets their well-ordered environment.
Despite the Editors best efforts to keep a business as usual attitude, he cannot bring himself to revise the red letter. More and more mail accumulates on his desk. The usually efficient Maid begins dozing off on the job and the Editor finds that he has stumbled to work in his pajamas. As their world unravels, statues come alive, buried dreams dig their way into the waking world, and memories dance.
