This visually and verbally arresting piece was hailed as "fascinatingŠbrilliant, sexy" by The Boston Phoenix. Conceived and directed by visual artist Ellen Driscoll, poet Tom Sleigh, and choreographers Amy Spencer and Richard Colton, formerly with Twyla Tharpe Dance, Ahabšs wife puts its title character at the helm of Melvillešs ship in a funny, yet profound examination of contemporary gender roles.
