Winner of Three 2015 Drammy Awards
Best Production of a Play, Many Hats Collaboration + Coho Productions
Outstanding Achievement in Piano Performance, Eric Nordin
Best Young Peformer, Elisha Henig
This visceral, sonically vivid new performance piece brings the classical piano music of Rachmaninoff to life through cutting edge physical theatre spun around a classic romance with magical elements of puppetry and mask. The power of music to connect, to ignite, and to heal weaves through this original fable by some of Portland’s most inventive and cherished collaborating theatre-artists.
