I Can’t Remember the Word for I Can’t Remember

Artistic Director Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg's continues her ongoing exploration of characters and the effects of culture and the dance world on women. This solo show is a wrought blend of gesture and spoken word that reveals and provokes assumptions about memory and identity. Through comedy, awareness and struggle, Tara examines her own experience as a woman, a homo sapiens and a mother.
