Fall of the Rebel Angels: X is an evening-length interdisciplinary work of dance and theater performance that is loosely inspired by the Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens. Using Ruben’s paintings as thematic scaffolding, the project investigates visceral physicality, sensuality and the spectacular. Galasso responds to Rubens’ epic scenes with her characteristic dry humor and cinematic style.

Fall of the Rebel Angels has manifested as an ongoing series of performance “studies” since 2012, with each chapter created for different casts and different sites. This approach mirrors Rubens’ own process: for every painting he would sketch several “studies” in pen and ink or charcoal. “X” is the tenth and final iteration of Fall of the Rebel Angels, and will combine movements generated for previous studies with new scenes inspired by the Nolan Park former military housing units on Governors Island.
