The Education of Icarus

Peter Redgrave to have New Orleans premier at Art Klub on December 13

On December 13th, Peter Redgrave will have the New Orleans premier of his solo dance theatre piece, The Education of Icarus, at Art Klub. In this dance-not-dance, theater-not-theater work, Redgrave creates a delicate world full of expectations where viewers ask, “Why is he doing this?” and “Why can’t I stop watching?” Using mundane objects and task oriented movement, The Education of Icarus unfolds into an offering for those who dedicate themselves to the ambitions of others.

TICKETS: $12 in advance, $15 at the door


About Peter Redgrave

Peter Redgrave is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Baltimore, MD. Redgrave trains as a dancer, opening and accessing his joints to unlock images from the fibres of his muscles. Steeped in improvisation and score based movement work, he often uses open adaptable structures to build performances which can be shaped by wherever they are presented. He has performed in parks, on the street, in warehouses, theaters, and former butcher shops to name a few.

Redgrave is dedicated to collaborative projects. He founded the Move Move Collaborative, a ten day movement intensive where artists from around the country come to Baltimore and create a performance by consensus.

He has performed at the High Zero festival and AKIMBO, a festival for site specific dance. He has worked with artists Lynne Price, Ada Pinkstone, Hoesy Corona, Khristian Weeks, Theresa Columbus, Chuck Bettis, Stephanie Barber, Sarah Hughes, Matthew Milliams, Jamal Moore, and many others. Redgrave has performed across the United States and Europe.

The Education of Icarus is his first solo work.

Previous Performance Reviews:


Lynne Price and Peter Redgrave

“These two artists work so well together throughout this piece as they really listened to each other physically and audibly.”

Ups and Downs

Peter Redgrave and Khristian Weeks

“...on paper a simple retelling of the story of Sisyphus. In practice, the work is a brilliant and subtle immersive experience”
