Co-presented by Open Dance Project and the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University and conceived and directed by Annie Arnoult, Bonnie & Clyde looks inward at the emotional journey of two young criminals from Texas in the midst of the Great Depression. Original music by Garreth Broesche and Hunter Perrin fills the nooks and crannies of the visually stunning, immersive, multimedia experience crafted by our design team (Lauren Davis, Edgar Guajardo, Ashley Horn, Ryan McGettigan and Tiffany Schrepferman).
Through compelling choreography by Annie Arnoult and the ensemble, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow’s sensationalized drama is peeled back to reveal a deeply human experience of love, desperation, and violence that personalizes contemporary issues of gun violence and prison reform.
Bonnie & Clyde is collaboratively developed and performed by Joshua de Alba, Sonia Engman, Atticus Griffin, Madelyn Manlove, Taylor McAnulty, Lizzy McGoldrick, Cameo Reneé, Joseph Stevens, Jaime Garcia Vergara, and Brenden Winkfield. The performance is produced by Robin Anderson with production management by Christina Maley.
The nine intermission-free, hour-long performances will take place May 27 and May 28 at 7 and 9 p.m.; June 1, 2, and 3 at 8 p.m. and June 4 at 7 and 9 p.m. at the Moody’s Lois Chiles Studio Theater. Tickets are $35 for the general public.
