Invocation of domestic isolation

Created and performed by Sarah Easterman, Puppets and set design by Emily Hunt, Sound design by Alyx Dennison, Lighting Design by Frankie Clarke, Dramaturgy by LJ Wilson.

A woman lives alone, restless for expression. Staving off loneliness in a world clinging to the idea of Noah's ark where we must all travel to our deaths two-by-two, she begins to anthropomorphise objects in her house, until she finds the one. Is it a dissociative breakdown, or is it love?
