Provocative literary figure Anais Nin is the subject of Cindy Shapiro's innovative dance opera, which combines rock music, dance and visual projections. Nin, who provided a very frank look into sex, affairs and artistic passion in her writing, became a literary icon among contemporaries in Paris during the 1930s— although after her death her personal life drew revulsion and criticism. Shapiro and director/ choreographer Janet Roston celebrate the life of the author, bringing the cafe society of Paris to the 21st century with Shapiro's lyrics, contemporary and classical dance movements and stunning visual imagery set to rock music. As extraordinary as its subject matter, Anaïs is not to be missed!
