Do You Want To Live Forever? is a story told primarily through dance with a side of poetry added for good measure. It is the story of a man who has learned to live forever and is seeking a worthy partner. Or it is the story of a woman stuck in the doldrums of life with the weight of impending death weighing her down. Their stories overlap in a relationship spanning centuries that eventually sees her reconsidering her place in it all. Neither character is named in the text so I’ll be calling them He and She.
The dance and movement work in the show ranges from excellent to very good. Delightful and mesmerizing. Allison Burns is a gorgeous dancer, exemplifying poetry in motion. Travis Martin makes a wonderful counterpart for their duets. And Alya Graham (as Maum, the goddess responsible for the gift of immortality) does some really fantastic work.
