Miceli Productions recently worked with the Judy Dworin Performance Project to capture photos for promoting their upcoming show The Witching Hour, a fascinating dance-theater piece depicting women and men accused, tried and convicted of witchcraft in mid 17th-century Connecticut. The piece investigates how fears of difference can turn dangerous and what lessons can be learned today by studying our past ills. More on the historical story and about the project background.

Information on the show from the Judy Dworin Performance Project website:
During Halloween week this fall, a newly restaged version of the award-winning, The Witching Hour will be presented on Friday and Saturday November 1st and 2nd at 7:30 p.m. in the Aetna Theater at the Wadsworth Atheneum where the very first incarnation of the piece was seen in 1994! Set in the context of the Puritanical community values of colonial Connecticut, The Witching Hour presents the little known stories of the prejudices and persecutions that resulted in the nation’s earliest witch craze in Hartford. Audiences will have the opportunity to discuss the performance and its themes with the cast in post-show talkbacks.
I was wonderfully impressed by The Witching Hour! Well conceived, beautifully executed, and totally satisfying….(and I am a fussy audience!) ~Brenda Milkofsky, CT River Museum
On Tuesday October 15th at 12:00 noon there will be a sneak preview of the piece at the Old State House, the site where Alyse Young, the first woman accused as a witch was executed in 1647.
Told through dance, spoken word, and music, The Witching Hour invites parallels to such pressing contemporary issues as bullying, gender injustice, intolerance, and wrongful accusation.
