Into the Dollhouse (at Flashpoint)

premiered at the Mead Theater Lab

“For those with a predilection for theater that wanders out of bounds. (A) soothing new performance piece (that) cocoons an audience in the music & imagery of popular culture. The effect is both familiar & mysterious.” – The Washington Post

Into the Dollhouse is an original devised-movement performance that explores girlhood, nostalgia and looking back in order to walk forward. The piece takes inspiration from Meredith Monk’s Education of the Girl Child, Anna Halprin’s Parades & Changes, selected text from Charles Mee’s Salome, and songs from yesteryear that trigger reminiscing.
