Authentic Histories is a dance project inspired by the humorous and tragic tale of Don Quixote. Quixote's imaginary world and his quest for power and recognition have allegorical resonance in a society laden with fantasies of dominance and ruthless attempts to attack imagined enemies. This work was created collaboratively by Lorraine Chapman and Dillon Paul, and was premiered at the Tsai Center for the Performing Arts in Boston, MA.
