A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose

Claire Parsons was asked to create a dance piece for the Carl von Linné jubilee in 2007 in Sweden. Gertrude Stein's famed quote about flowers was a perfect match for a performance.

Roses, dancing and garden clippers. Baroque dancing wrestles with the botanist Linné.
A flower turns into a surrealist costume. In a performance where humour and dancing meet science in natural elements.

A dance for parks, castles, museums and outdoor festivals.

The performance was produced at a residence in Lidköping (SE)  in the spring of 2007.
