American Decadence

American Decadence

American Decadence is a tongue-in-cheek look at the seven deadly sins of modern America, as seen through the loving eyes of Italy. The piece explores each sin through seven distinct short scenes that examine contemporary manifestations of these classic themes, as showcased through the talents of the fourteen members of the 2010 summer Artmonk community. The show is woven together by a lovable Italian storyteller with an accordion who narrates between each scene, making the piece accessible to Italian audiences. American Decadence premiered in July 2010 as part of the Labro Festival celebrating music, dance, and theater in central Italy, and is still available for tours in Italy and the U.S.
