View theatre details
In this matrilineal, dark humor landscape, the lonesome and forgotten search for new connective tissue, mundane chaos and ancient desires reign and the trees await a return.

On the edge of a city: Lottie the Librarian and her adoptive grandmother Tante Eunice Geld secretly live in their garden allotment. Witches sing night-time songs around the last sacred grove in the neighborhood in preparation of a death party. Teenage daughter Susi Schmidt schemes to finally join her long-lost father in America, and Mama keeps a secret that is eating her from the inside out. An ancestral forest beckons, and Dietrich, child to Mom in the Moon, attempts jazz. Choral song + pedestrian movement; performed in German, English, and Denglish.
