Theatre preview: “Claudel” tells story of tumultuous affair

From the January 23, 2014 edition

Columbus Dance Theatre’s “Claudel” will combine a wide array of art forms — dance, theatre, music, poetry, visual art and multi-media elements — to tell the story of 19th Century sculptor Camille Claudel and her tumultuous affair with mentor Auguste Rodin.

Under the supervision of artistic director Tim Veach, “Claudel” combines live music by the Carpe Diem String Quartet, original poetry, live theatrical performances, photography and more for a multi-media design joined together through the choreography.
