"Haunted House was my commitment to exorcise the violent imbalance that cripples a search to a pure and honest society. Liberation in every effort I undertake is the ultimate goal."
-Daniel Wilkins, Producing Artistic Director
Haunted House (2000)
Set in three acts, Haunted House explored the delicate balance of survival that is tipped when a lack of emotional resilience leaves the individual without a sense of control or direction. Set in a bar, the dancers find a sanctuary for self abuse, as well as a place to relax and let loose, thereby allowing their inner demons to escape and run amok. As the piece progresses, the dancers become creatures who represent various neuroses and the basest human desires. In the concluding act, the dancers regain their former strength and new powers through meditation and an appreciation for the value of sharing their fears and dreams with each other.
