Statement

This piece is about a woman who was born with two heads. Her parents make the decision when she is born to "dissect" one of the heads so that she can grow up normal. But then, as an adult, her other head comes back to haunt her.

The piece is told through puppetry, movement and dance, with some dialogue in blank verse. For this play, the actors and I all learned the tango.

On this piece I collaborated with Julianne Raymond, who created the puppets, and Bounte, who composed the music.
