Shelly’s Spherical Journey (in progress)
Draft #1 at Theater for the New City, NYC – 2010
Shelly runs a motel she inherited in Framingham, Massachusetts – a motel with a pool where animals keep going to die. Fed up with the daily tedium of existence, she burns down the motel and hits the road with only a suitcase of her most treasured belongings in a desperate attempt to find out what it means to live.
A darkly inspiring one-woman multi-sensory narrative incorporating butoh, jazz trumpet, mime, slapstick and song.
