For its anniversary season, Jan Street Dance Theatre is presenting five new works in two programs over six performances at Walden Theatre. The focal point of the program will be “Bibliography of Love,” a series of vignettes framed by an infamous yet hidden historic gay and lesbian love triangle: the 1917 affair between Vita Sackville-West and Violet Trefusis, in full view of Vita’s bisexual husband Harold Nicolson. “Bibliography of Love” asks: What would you give up for love? Spoken word, intimate gesture and high velocity dance all help to provide the answer. Other works performed include “Hubris,” “Incidental Contact,” “Mine’s Eye” and “TGV.” The mission of Jan Street is to combine the physical with the textual for a highly evocative, emotional experience. —Jonathan Ashley
