What happens when a group of traveling side show performers decides to mount one of Shakespeare's first comedies for a lark? A ribald romp of mistaken identities ensues. One of Shakespeare's earliest, shortest, and funniest plays, and his first commissioned work, The Comedy of Errors takes us on a farcical ride where anxieties lock horns with the transformative power of love. Despite the absurdity, we are left with an awareness of mortality, human frailty, and a lingering question: how is the sense of self undermined when the world fails to recognize you?

Tonight, Emilie du Châtelet, leading physicist (before there was such a word), card shark, and all-around bad ass during the Age of Enlightenment returns searching for answers: Love or Philosophy? Head or Heart? Join the outspoken, revolutionary, and brilliantly sexy Marquise who introduced Newtonian physics to France and took Voltaire as her lover (correcting errors in his work) for a "fiercely inquisitive and joyfully sexy" (San Francisco Chronicle) theatrical exploration. Traverse time and space with a woman living ahead of her time, ignoring the rules of polite society, with her only limitation being that of her dexterous mind.

Sweet Purgatory 
Commissioned for Pilobolus' 20th anniversary, this remarkable piece traces a path from Hades, through Purgatory, to Hope.

Hanna, a brutally blunt international journalist, is struggling to come to terms with her husband's violent death. After accepting a seemingly tame assignment, she becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the history of another Hannah: the infamous Hannah Dustin who was kidnapped by a Native American raiding party in 1697. Soon the stories of the two Hanna(h)s begin to merge into a single portrait of a smart woman, torn from the only world she knows, who crosses the line between civilization and her own wilderness.
