Volver spontaneously took shape when Weare decided to restage her seminal 2007 work Drop Down on two men. Drop Down and Volver riff off each other, paying homage to tango. While Drop Down is contentious and Volver is temperate, they both explore desire and how it upends our autonomy.
Volver will have its world premiere in Kate Weare Company's 10th Anniversary Season at BAM, February 19-22, 2015.
