Joan of Arc in a Supermarket in California
100 min, Theatre
5f, 3-6 ballerinas, 1 voice, 1 band
Frances odysseys down California's freeways in search of a supermarket where she once received a prophecy. As the supermarket waits for her, its teen girl employees are surveilled. Frances inches closer, California burns, and the supermarket transforms monstrously. An epic daydream that explores intuition, paranoia, and possession. ***************************************************************
