Hope for the Haunted de Valerie Dean et Don Rieder
April 13 at 6pm and April 14 at 4pm @ Studio 303

In Hope for the Haunted two biologicals, are put on display in a small habitat. They are islanded in a space that is both a sanctuary and a prison. Both specimens are arboreal, neither fully human not completely animal. They play on their leafless tree, taking pleasure in their own agility and grace. Ridiculous and tragic, they act out various escapes, and observe and tease those outside their small world. As they relive happy moments from their past, they are also haunted by darker memories.
