Everything Starts from a Dot (work-in-progress)
Nekaa Lab / Sachiyo Takahashi

Inspired by a quote from Wassily Kandinsky, Everything Starts from a Dot is an abstract journey of a humble dot told through the projection of miniature worlds and manipulation of large objects in live space. Newly developed visual and audio elements are introduced through a 20 minute performance.

Everything Starts from a Dot is supported by The Jim Henson Foundation 2017 Workshop Grant and 2018 Production Grant.


The Last Rat of Theresienstadt
Hilary Chaplain

Sofia, a cabaret star, now a camp cook and Pavel, a fat rat, now scrawny, begin as adversaries. Over time they form a true deep friendship. This is a story of survival, prejudice, feeding the soul and feeding the body. It’s a story of humor, art, and a stolen sausage.

How do you shape your face?
How do you pretend you are not home when your persistent neighbor knocks at the door?
Do you know how to make your clones?
First, try your way. If it doesn’t work, here is my way.
