ANNOUNCING...Firehorse & Shadow!



An interactive web performance

Special Preview

02 - 12 - 2021

7:30pm EST

Dance artist Andrea Nann is joined by shadow puppeteer and theatre artist, Annie Katsura Rollins, in this new experiential interactive web performance that collaboratively investigates what binds and holds family members together, and ultimately what frees and heals the family line.

Firehorse and Shadow explores family lineage with a focus on the dualistic yin and yang elements expressed within the bodies, lives and choices of three generations of women. Working against and alongside the hearsay of family stories and Chinese medicine cycles and charts of astrological animal signs, two performers weave together passages of remembering and forgetting, inviting the audience into an intimate reanimation of familial memory.
