Animal Corridor, 2017
It’s wonderful that you have pulled something out of me your audience. The primal scream was more than cathartic; it unleashed things I had been living with. —Audience Member Tofte Lake Center Residency
The Animal Corridor is inspired by female icons Janis Joplin, prize fighter Ronda Rousey; and T.V. sportscasters. This darkly humorous, post-apocalyptic world is devised to smash open expectations as we move towards a new gender utopia.
