A Rose Is A Rose
Is A Rose

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 meets science in natural elements.

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