    World Premiere!
    Part of the 2019 Fringe Festival. Presented in partnership with The Wilma Theater.

    Visual arts pioneer Rosa Barba and Wilma’s innovative artistic director Blanka Zizka collaborate to bring a seminal work of contemporary poetry to the stage.

    Mining English phrases for the essential thoughts from which language was born, Etel Adnan’s book-length meditation on conflict and identity makes an ideal vehicle for the critically acclaimed Wilma HotHouse Company. This diverse group of Philadelphia actors use full-body expressions to go beneath the surface meanings of the text to its emotional core.

    Barba’s set reconfigures the Wilma’s proscenium space, stretching over the usual seating plan and serving as both a stage and a projection surface, recasting the audience as an active observer-participant in Adnan’s self-discovery. And as Wilma HotHouse’s interpretation reveals, when we seek to discover ourselves what we are really embarking upon is a quest for love.
