This site-specific, promenade piece evoked the mystery, intensity and adventure of Shahrazad’s ancient tales in a way that was full of stunning imagery, sensuality and breathtaking surprises. The audience was transported through real and imagined landscapes on Double Edge Theatre’s farm. The stories wove themselves in and around the audience harnessing the power of nature, bodies, spectacle and song. It was a visceral reminder of the power of theatre and the communal ritual of both telling stories and listening to stories. I will always have beautiful memories as songs floated above our heads and into the night.
All this, only 90 minutes from Hartford. I’ll be sure to put attending next summer’s performance – whatever it is – on the schedule for the Bated Breath ensemble. --Mara Lieberman
