Winter, 1974. A little girl waits for her mother to come home with a new baby. It’s twins! Summer comes and the three girls are caught on cinefilm, playing in the garden.
Cooking Ghosts is the moving story of a woman who has no choice but to leave her children. A tale of tenderness and laughter turns to sadness and confusion, and the children abruptly lose their innocence. In this surreal and raucous show, an attempt to understand the past becomes a daring journey through the veils of memory that yields surprises and awakens ghosts.
Cooking Ghosts is a fusion of visual story telling, puppetry, archive film footage and a composed score.
A delicate patchwork of visual storytelling that is…breathtaking.

Gym Party is at once a delicate and violent three-way contest and a hilariously confused call-to-arms. It will explore the psychology of winning and the nature of pride: the desire to be and get the most, in all its triumphant and ugly incarnations.
