The Luxury of Suffering (2013) was an independently written, acted, and directed play in the Fairbanks community sponsored by Revive the Red Tent. The project tackled the subject of fear... the lengths we go to in hiding it and from it and how we need it in our lives. This piece evolved into a number of sister productions including "Fragile Nightmares," a dance duet performed on an international festival stage in California by Jillazanne and Brighton Brooks. It served as one of the catalysts for the creation of Delirium Dance Productions.
Heart Machine was a theatrical dance trio created by a number of collaborators and performed (right) by LesleyD, Jillazanne, and Brighton Brooks in the summer of 2014. This piece explored love from a machine's perspective. Can it be programmed? Can it exist without conflicting parameters?
