The Yellow Wallpaper

Annie will be dancing and acting in the NYC Fringe Festival show The Yellow Wallpaper.

Based on the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. "I kept still and watched the wallpaper. The faint figure behind seemed to shake the pattern, just as if she wanted to get out." Haunting and provocative, this adaptation combines the classic text with contemporary dance to examine toxic masculinity.
