Our current projects
INCONSOLABLE! is a one hour tragic comedy about our trans relationships with Jewish grief rituals. What comes to the surface as we bury the dead?
While mourning the death of our friend Simon, we work out how to deal with loss our way. This involves food, digestion, community expulsion, burial rites and a gigantic Trans Anus.
The show brings together storytelling, ritual-based live art, and live klezmer music.
