Clouded Sulphur (death is a knot undone)
Please join us for this invited preview.

Directed by Janie Geiser
Written by Erik Ehn
Music Composed by Valerie Opielski

Set at the raw edges of Los Angeles, where the untamed landscape meets the city, Clouded Sulphur merges Bunraku and other forms of puppetry with visual installation, projection, text and music to dig into the emotional terrain that surrounds the unsolved abduction and murder of a 15-year-old girl. Created for an intimate storefront theater by director and designer Janie Geiser, playwright Erik Ehn and composer Valerie Opielski, the work orbits the real-life events through an elliptical narrative in which figures move inexplicably between life and death, city and forest. As the laws of gravity and time become unmoored, this powerful work navigates a complex terrain of family, loss and psychological unravelling, along with unexpected floods of compassion and hope.

Performed by:  Baxley Andresen, Catherine Adell, Tane Kawasaki, Moira Macdonald, Erin O'Donnell, Whitney Rodriguez, Eli Presser, Hilario Saavedra, Luis Tentindo, Jonathan Williams, Melody Yenn, and Zachary Schwartz.
