The Letting Go
2014 25 minutes (clip above)
Workshop premiere Risk/Reward Festival Artist Repertory Theater Portland Oregon June 20 - 22 2014
Work in progress - 20 minute version of an evening length performance.
Caught in a flashlights beam, objects spill across the floor, specters float, and ghosts tip toe around a sleeping boy. Shadows, miniature sets, stop-motion animation and puppets inhabit this chilling story. This is the story of a succubus. It's a true story. I woke up with the sheets tied around my ankles, he out of a dream where she had kissed him deeply. We both heard her bang around, slam the door.
