1000 Ladders Down

February 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Offer What You Will

a workshop reading by Deaf Crows Collective
February 15 at 4pm 
in the Backstage Theatre

Joanne Weber (writer/performer, artistic director of Deaf Crows Collective) is developing a new Deaf Crows Collective original performance, an underworld journey paralleling Joanne’s own struggle to descend ‘a thousand ladders down’ to befriend the ‘clod of earth’ that she is. The play also features the struggle of a mother (Michelle Grodecki) to empower her Deaf son (Mustafa Alabssi) so that he can begin his journey of ascent. As a shaman in training, he rises and takes his place as a new leader in the Deaf community.

Please join us for a workshopped reading of this forthcoming work. The finished performance will include ASL poetry, puppetry, physical performance, dancing and drumming, and encounters with a Celtic shaman! This is mythmaking on a new scale!

Cast: Joanne Weber, Mustafa Alabssi, Michelle Grodecki
