Positions is a fictional imagining of the life of the painter Edgar Degas, told by twelve of the dancers he painted. Their stories echo the history of the theater; each voice desperately struggling to present her position, as one by one they vanish from the stage. Ranging from the beautiful to the violent, these "paintings" construct a fragmented depiction of the power and chaos enacted by artists on their creations.

Two sets of twins. Separated at birth. What could go wrong?
Fighting, dancing, and high jinx will occur. Grab a seat and lose your identity in one of Shakespeare's early comedies.
So here's how the prepping worked. Three local photographers snapped pictures of actors. Then three playwrights wrote plays inspired by the photos. So if a picture is worth a thousand words...
The night also featured live singing by Katy Burns and Ellen Dyer, a dance performance by Cindy Lou Parker and improv from Magical Lying Hour and Ophelia's Rope. All this added up to one big night of performances featuring Houston MC, Amy Pope.
