First things first: Choreographer Ann Carlson’s latest work has nothing to do with Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy. It does feature a chorus of humans and canines—not to mention a herd of sheep!—frolicking in the open green expanse in West Fairmount Park known as Belmont Plateau. . Described as a “3-D pastoral poem,” the show challenges audience expectations of live performance and plays with the unpredictability of working with animals. It also explores the bonds we humans feel with our four-legged and hoofed companions.
