PRELUDE Festival NYC 2015

"...It requires your full attention, as you wrench out your own private moments of joy.… a world both hermetic and cracked open… the myths are alive, bigger than us, and liable to slip into our daily lives unexpectedly. In Horvitz’s work, where the true essence of the play is revealed incidentally, Jung’s combustible worldview is on full display." – Eric Marlin, New York Theater Review

"Can car horns become music?" – Rachel Abrams, Theater Is Easy


Created and Performed by Deidrea Hamid, Eliza McKelway, and Ryan Pater
