Lisa DeGrace will present an original work, Flying Iron, December 5, 6, 7 and 12, 13, 14 at Performance Works Northwest, 4625 SE 67th Ave in Portland.

Conceived and performed by Lisa, Flying Iron is about hope and hopelessness. The audience sees a clown trapped by choice in a very small world, an iron hoop skirt contained within a 30 foot diameter dress. The piece explores the solitude of being alone, even when surrounded by people. Ultimately, the show is about trying to let go of the heavy things we carry.

Flying Iron utilizes music, movement, costume, text, and clowning to bring a unique story to life. Lisa was trained in the Pochinko clown method by Toronto based master clown teacher Sue Morrison. Historically, clowns are the truth tellers, providing a sort of exaggerated mirror into which people can peer at themselves and the world around them, reminding us all of our own potential, as well as our own ridiculousness.

Local choreographer Meshi Chavez, Massachusetts based director Sheila Siragusa, and clown teacher Sue Morrison provided direction during the creation process. The costume was built by Kirsten Moore of Piper Ewan and metal sculptor Richard Cawley.

Flying Iron is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
