June 9-10, 2023 From the Ground Up : A Mini-Festival of New Works
From sleepless nights to obsessions with rhythms and the ‘clappy monster’ to road trips through the cosmos this two weekends of performances will take you to into unusual places, reveal surprising truths and ask you to look deeply at the world and yourself. Each new work finds its ground in the lived experiences of our residents, remembering that as different as we all are, it is the truths we share that draws us much closer than we may think. These radically vulnerable new works will delight and dismay you, remind you to look back and dream ahead and ask you to ask more.
Created and Performed by:
