Hank and Jonna (re-interpreted versions of Henry and John Thoreau) set off in "a vessel of spirit placed on the medium of nature" a journey in a boat these two adventurous siblings handcrafted to explore the legendary Concord and Merrimack rivers. This duo find themselves guided on a quest to find the means to heal the profound trauma that befell Hank, a great American activist, scientist, and man of letters. Set in the lands that mark the birthplace of the American Revolution, Hank and Jonna experience the ancient ways in which the human soul resonates and interfaces with nature, while witnessing the lives of country folk and the living world's growing relationship with modernization.

An adaptation of the story behind Thoreau's first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, OF RIVERS, OF DAYS is a journey through the mind of this great writer during his darkest hours. A play with a powerful musical landscape, it challenges conventional theater through movement, song, sign, and the spoken word. The story is framed through the lens of a modern eye, helping to connect the audience to Thoreau's timeless musings.

OF RIVERS, OF DAYS has four central characters  Hank, the brother; Jonna, the sister; their omnipresent guide; and the River they travel on. This River is an original music score composed by Cornelius Dufallo, violinist of the avant-garde string quartet, Ethel.

SOUL STRATA THEATER is a family of theater artists dedicated to helping one another develop artistic voice and vision in an effort to impact the world.
