Driving the Body Back (Virtual)


“A marvelous collection of folk humor, wild ways, and down-home storytelling.....sometimes harsh, but always deeply compassionate....”This is how Louise Erdrich (New York Times Book Review) describes the literary work which forms the basis for this production. Directed by Michael Sokoloff, late puppeteer Teri Jean Breitbach incorporates movement, found objects, a child’s doll, painted silks, and the resonating language of nationally renowned poet Mary Swander to create this evocative piece. This unforgettable group of eccentric midwestern characters will make you laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh!

Currently available only as a virtual performance.
