About this show

Long Island City. 2019. In an ego-driven and narcissistic world, two women possess the distinct anxiety of calling themselves artists. In a last-ditch effort before they throw in the proverbial towel and become accountants, the pair begin work on what they hope will be their magnum opus, an ambitious and hellish physical-theater adaptation of Dante's Inferno. Crushing Baby Animals follows two traumatized women growing up in the millennial age as they accidentally open a cosmic wormhole that sucks them through space, time, and the human mind. This meta work takes us on an uncharted and timely adventure through parallel dimensions and personal hells, bringing us face to face with our own antagonistic dopplegängers, the perils of the human psyche, and the absurd pitfalls of human identity. The play blends physical theater, multimedia, and a healthy dose of humor in a unique artistic experience.
