Shadowbox Dwell explores the romantic legend and harsh actuality of outlaws Bonnie and Clyde in its new dance-theater piece.

“No Return: The Deadly Dance of Bonnie and Clyde,” initially deliberate to debut in 2020, will open Sept. 15 for a two-month run at 503 S. Entrance St. 

“Bonnie and Clyde’s story is… so dramatic, like a true-crime TV show,” firm chief Katy Psenicka mentioned.

Psenicka conceived, choreographed and directed the piece, starting in 2019, primarily based on her analysis of the short-lived lives of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. One in all America’s most well-known prison {couples} from a broadly coated manhunt, they have been shot to dying by officers in a 1934 ambush.

“What Clyde and Bonnie endured during the Dust Bowl era was incredible… It’s a wild story of survival with many moments of no return. Telling the story through dance shows their path to self-destruction,” Psenicka mentioned.
