TERRA INCOGNITA:

Through the Waves

Weaving a poetic vocabulary of acrobatic movement and storytelling, this intimate play tells the tale of one woman, lost between the uncharted waters of her grief and the mountaintops of her joyful memories following the disappearance of her soul-mate.  Created, directed and performed by four women. Developed as Artist’s in Residence at the San Francisco Circus Center.
