The Stronger

The Stronger  evokes the interior conflicts of two women grappling with love, betrayal, and shame and is inspired by August Strindberg's play of the same name. An emotional and psychological journey unfolds as we are drawn into the interior worlds of two women who are in love with the same man. Without dialogue, the story is entirely told through subtle and emotionally charged choreography, juxtaposed with realistic vignettes.
