Mosquito’s Wedding (All We Need Is Love) is a new production inspired by a traditional Ukrainian folk song. The 50-minute family-focused dance theatre production features a number of insect characters from various “regions” of Ukraine. The dance lexicon, musical compositions, and sets, costumes and props are also associated with these ethnographic regions. The theme of the production is one of acceptance, diversity, and overcoming stereotypes. Mosquito’s Wedding is being directed by Les Sereda, with consultation by John Pichlyk. Choreographers include Les Sereda, John Pichlyk, Tasha Orysiuk, Paul Olijnyk, and Joseph Hoffman. Music is by Andriy Shoost, with costumes by Anna Ipatieva and sets by Andrii Zlobin of Ukraine. Local designers Eli Lindenberger, Jeff Osterlin and Randall Fraser, are bringing their expertise in the area of projections, lighting and puppetry, respectively.
