is a 60 minute piece of original dance theater that features Hubbard Street 2 with choreography and original concept by Robyn Mineko Williams, music direction by Kyle Vegter, puppetry and projection design by Julia Miller and Sarah Fornace, and narrative design by Fornace, Miller, and Williams. The tedium of everyday life in the not-too-distant future makes a girl restless until one day she discovers a crate in her attic, filled with vinyl records collected by her mother. Armed only with headphones, our young hero is transported to a world of music and shadow, where she makes friends, builds impossible machines, escapes entrapment, and slays her own demons. For ages 5 and up.
Commissioned by the Kennedy Center and premiered there in October 2015.
