RITUAL (Featuring Siobhan LaPorte-Cauley as THE WOMAN)

The difference between the rituals that are prescribed to us verses the rituals that we find and choose for ourselves.

"RITUAL is about exploring the routines in our lives and mental health, both the routines we follow naturally and the routines we are expected to follow. What is deemed normal and healthy doesn't always feel natural or right. What happens when you break through society's prescribed cycle and find your own rhythm?" - Siobhan LaPorte-Cauley

LIGHT (Featuring Ottavia De Luca as THE WOMAN)

The pure juxtaposition of what exists in the light and what is born from the dark.

"I want to use light as a vehicle through which to explore what it feels like to be a captive in your own mind. A glimpse of light or a shadow can taunt you, can challenge you, can make you question, and can give you a moment - however fleeting - of clarity. For me the light is a visceral representation of everything the woman sees and feels. It's in her, but it's also just out of her reach." - Ottavia De Luca

COLOR (Featuring Sarah Leach as THE WOMAN)

The breaking down of what we perceive as the world around us ; an exploration of what the layers of our perception mean when experienced through our known and unknown senses ; a journey from solid to liquid.

"COLOR is only perception. What other ways do our senses fool us? What happens when we try to control our senses? Do they disappear completely? Or do we fall into sensory overload? The yellow wallpaper tells the story of a woman who starts to see haunting images in a sickly yellow pattern on the wall of her bedroom. My question in exploring this piece is, does she experience madness? Or is that just our perception of it?" - Sarah Leach

ESCAPE (Featuring Erika Rethorn as THE WOMAN)

The beauty and horror of the impossible as experienced through flights of fancy ; the creation and exploration of dreams.

"In exploring the mind and all of its capabilities this season, the element of "Escape" is worth diving in to, as we watch The Woman do all that she can to protect herself and her sanity. Within this process we have been amazed, and wonder at the way the mind will create realities to shield itself from painful circumstances. The Woman in this story is warned by her husband not to "give way to fancy". He begs her to stay calm, and rest. But, what happens when she explores a reality that no one else can see? Is there value in finding comfort in the imaginary? And what happens when all perception and dimensions collide, sealing the way back to "normal"? What if "normal" was never there?" - Erika Rethorn
