A Fishing Line Sings

 

A new collaboration between Rima and Erin Orr, featuring shadow puppetry, storytelling, and original music. The piece explores themes of fishing as remembering, fish as magical messengers from hidden realms, fish as human ancestors, and women transforming into fish and escaping into the deep, and draws on personal memories and dreams as well as Finnish and Slavic mythology.

 

The piece was presented as part of Alphabet Arts' Puppets and Poets Festival at the Bushwick Starr in Dec. 2014.
