Based on the November 12 - 16, 2002 performances at ATA (American Theater of Actors)

Scott Rink presents two captivating dance plays in DANCE RINK. 
In the World Premier of "Seductions of the Desert" a lonely woman
(Lenna Parr) feverishly performs a love dance, driven by
desperation, spurred on by fantasy, and invaded by reality.  The
subject of her illusion is a bus driver (Rink) with devious plans and
deadly results.  Narrated by Eliza Foss and punctuated by Doris Day
songs, "Seductions" is a dance on the dark side of love.  "On His
Deathbed, Holding Your Hand" is a brutally honest confession of
a dying father (Steve Anderson) concerning his feelings for his son
(Rink).  A fetus performing a crouched dance on a stool, shadow
dancing, and a symbiotic coupling of Rink and Parr as mother and
son highlight this piece.  Victor Truro narrates.  Somber subjects
with just the right amount of music, dance, and narration make
DANCE RINK an interesting evening of entertainment.
