Heading into the home stretch, I’m seeing two new participant performance tonight.
From Seattle, Samara Lerman offers WHERE THERE WERE WOODS:
What happens when your family lineage stops with you? What happens to the stories and memories of generations past? When the ghost of her grandmother starts visiting her at night, Samara is compelled to travel through interwoven family stories of survival. WHERE THERE WERE WOODS is a train-hopping, border-crossing story of danger, adventure, magic, loss, and the power of storytelling.
Then it’s Jimmy Grzelak from Philadelphia with WILDERNESS SURVIVAL:
Jimmy Grzelak is an Eagle Scout, spiritual voyager, and “winningly offbeat imagination” (Washington Post). Sometime in the early 2000s, somewhere in rural America, young Jimmy was initiated into the ways of a world ruled by adolescent boys. In 2017, older Jimmy woke up and realized that knowledge is now nationally relevant. He comes to Cincinnati to do his duty as a scout – to serve as your guide into the wild.
