Ship of Fools
I am directing and designing this original show about the pathologizing of femininity as a HARP resident artist at HERE arts center.
Ship of Fools is a multi-disciplinary theater piece involving live music, puppetry, movement and strong visual design that seeks to illuminate the age-old practice of pathologizing women. The audience will travel with us, weaving through re-imagined moments in history, interrupted by moments of jarring fantasy that turn the narrative on it’s head, planting a question in their minds: are the inmates running the asylum? Like the fabled Ship of Fools, passengers will be forced to wonder who is actually steering our ship: storyteller, politician or madman? What happens to all of us when this ship, sailing blind, finally runs aground?
