Following the program, a Wright@Night SC Johnson Campus Tour will be available from 8:00-9:30 p.m. – a separate reservation is required.
Inspired by the women closest to architect Frank Lloyd Wright, dance and theater construct are used to express untold stories of house and home. An original solo dance theatre work, creator and performer Jenni Reinke embodies these industrious and colorful women in this performance.
“Mrs. Wrights” begins with Olgivanna (Lazovich Miljanov) Lloyd Wright, third and final wife of Wright. Olgivanna is a composer, dancer and writer, and was the originator and organizer of the Taliesin Fellowship with her husband. Olgivanna’s husband, the famed American architect, has just died. In grief and anger, she summons her deep spirituality to become a medium for the women closest to him. The stories she sees offer a meditation on relationship, independence and immortality.
The women Reinke portrays are Olgivanna, his mother Anna, his lover Mamah, and his ex-wives Kitty and Miriam. Reinke will host a talkback with the audience following the performance. ______________________________________________________________________________
