MARCH 7 - 11, 2018

Age Range: 3 to 24 months

A Collective Collaboration by Maja Ardal, Audrey Dwyer, Mary Francis Moore and Julia Tribe
DEVELOPED FROM THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT, RESEARCH AND THEME
BY MAJA ARDAL

One Thing Leads to Another is the culmination of two years of research by Maja Ardal. She has consumed text books full of infant developmental research and, in rehearsal, we have played more games of peek-a-boo with each other than you can imagine. Along the way we have tried to distill an enormous amount of academia into playbased scenarios that will provoke, stimulate and entertain our young audience.


APRIL 3 AND 4, 2018

Still/Falling tells the story of Nina. Nina has a great life She loves her family, she does well in school, and her friends are awesome. But suddenly Nina starts feeling… off, and she finds herself slipping into a dark reality she cannot understand, let alone articulate to the people around her. Still/Falling follows Nina as she tries to come to terms with what it means to struggle with anxiety and depression, and to rise above it with as much strength, and as few scars, as possible.
