bearstory was a 12 minute material exploration and preliminary version of Between Two Rocks

Between Two Rocks
approximately 55 minutes.

Between Two Rocks is a performance inspired by Norse folktale East of the Sun West of the Moon. The work unravels an imagined horizon across harsh and humbling landscapes. On stage, large piles of wool are manipulated to create characters and environments; it is carded, spun, and woven by five performers. The show features objects used for processing wool, including a pair of spinning wheels that spin the horizon out of thread.
