Call for Performers

Play Description

Seven Pieces is an interdisciplinary theatrical story exploring the fragmented relationships between Adult Kate, her child self and her Body, as a result of childhood abuse. Through movement, vocals, breath, text and an elephant body, the seven pieces of Body tell the story of survival and what it means to be lost from and find your way back to belonging, identity and Self.
