      But not all of Soot and Spit is idyllic country life and songs and monologues of Castle’s creations. There is a disturbance brought to the story by The Woman in Black (Alida Rose Delaney), a muse or a dark angel, signing and dancing throughout the show. Choreographer John Heginbotham and composer Colin Jacobsen combine their artistic forces with the string quartet Brooklyn Rider, singer Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond and Dance Heginbotham company members in Chalk and Soot. This new work is an evening-length dance theatre piece, based on Sounds, a book of poems by the Russian twentieth-century modernist artist Wassily Kandinsky.

    For HERZ SCHMERZ, John Heginbotham and Maira Kalman, the latter of whom appears in the piece, have strung together a series of vignettes inspired by Robert Walser’s writings that flicker with joy, frustration, and humor. The performance incorporates movement and spoken text—drawn heavily from the Walser short story “Nervous,” a monologue about aging and unease—to depict scenes of.   The pair both get covered in soot as the dance number “Step in Time” is performed. Pollack-Pelzner says that, while the scene may be comic, the author of the Mary Poppins books, PL Travers, often associated chimney sweeps’ blackened faces with racial caricatures.

      The most visually effective moment of the show is the opening scene, when the coal miners rise up from dark, ominous depths beneath the stage on an elevator, covered in soot .   A U.S. professor is deeming the classic film “Mary Poppins” racist, accusing Julie Andrews of “blacking up” her face with soot while dancing with chimney sweeps.
