TRT 40 minutes
A pandemic induced trip down memory lane, featuring puppets and a treatise on The Sopranos, is put into hyper speed when a gendernonconforming praying mantis named E appears in Kelsey’s study. They lead her down a path of discovery of the patterns that shaped who she thinks she is. Before going any further, she must uncover a truth she might not be willing to face, at least, not on her own. This piece leans into the voyeuristic nature of Zoom performances, explores the binaries we occupy, and asks how we can leap past our old behaviors into the possibilities of the unknown.
