Your Sister Turns Into a Lion is a new, evening-length narrative dance piece about two sisters and what happens when one of them turns into a lion. Built on spoken text devised by the cast, the show is a hybrid of real memories and surreal fiction, a story told in acrobatic phone calls to next of kin, an interrogation presided over by a conductor, the unabashed savagery of beasts, and the tender folding of maps. Created in collaboration with Oakland-based composer Jordan Glenn and five dancers, four musicians, and a classically trained vocalist.
We are trying to raise $10,000 by December 1st to pay our wonderful collaborators. Donations of any size are enormously appreciated (and tax deductible!).
