The Clothesline Muse
A partnership with SMU Meadows School of the Arts
April 2 - 4, 2015

The Clothesline Muse will transport you to a different world where the onerous yet honorable task of washing clothes by hand is transformed into beautiful imagery, dance, and song. This multi-disciplinary theater performance combines the talents and knowledge of three incredible artists to create an evening of live dance, jazz music, spoken work, video, and interactive art. Before we were online, there was the clothesline.

The Clothesline Muse is made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Theater Project with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
