If My Feet Have Lost the Ground

If My Feet Have Lost the Ground is a mixed media play, using puppetry and video. It follows Grace, a woman who is constantly working and suspended in flight more often than not. Her view on life shifts when she finds a letter stuffed in the seat pocket in front of her.  The letter contains a living, beating heart.  Unsure of how to care for such a thing she struggles to keep it alive, while desperately trying to return it to an un-named owner.  Sometime during her search for the owner she starts to see the world and herself differently and begins to wonder what else she has been missing.

Collaboration with Torry Bend and Jon Haas. Opening at ManBites Dog in October 2104
