Northwest Dance Studio is bringing the tale of Maggie to the stage -- a fast-paced retelling of the story of Mary Magdalene using contemporary dance, original music and multimedia backdrops.
Put on by Northwest Dance Studio, Maggie is based loosely on the ancient story of Mary Magdalene, a prostitute who escapes death and destruction to find a new life. The production takes place in a modern setting inspired by the colorful movie “Moulin Rouge.”
Throughout Maggie, dancers take the stage set in the seedy surroundings of a modern day brothel. There we meet Maggie, a young woman struggling to find a home. Drawn in by the charming and deceitful ringmaster, Maggie joins the brothel’s group of young women and begins the descent into their nightmarish underworld. The production, which includes aerial, modern and ballet dance supported by video scenery and original music written and recorded just for the production, follows Maggie’s journey from seemingly finding the answer to her hopes and dreams, to learning how to create a new vision of herself and her future.
