New York City
Fear is like this: Someone like a woman that you grab a hold of her hand and going down the escalator when all of a sudden you happen to be holding a stranger’s hand not realizing that she isn’t your mother.
What is fear? How do we cope with it? How can we express it? Based on the book by Michael Bernard Loggins, an artist with developmental disabilities working at Creativity Explored, this multi-media production features dance music, theater, aerial dance, video and huge papier-mâché puppets to explore our relationship with the sometimes serious and often humorous things that scare us — from our tear ducts to our funny bone.
Monsters, speeding bus drivers and hugs from someone you don’t like are only some of the fears that stalk the stage in this exciting production.
Directed by Kim Epifano, the show is designed for audiences of all ages and, integrating young performers with and without disabilities, is performed on a stage transformed by Loggins’ distinctive drawings into a vibrant and interactive world of art and animation, puppetry and song.
