We Will Return in the Spring delves into Chekhov’s iconic work The Cherry Orchard through an interdisciplinary approach that blends theater, movement, music, installation, and particularly, audience immersion. Audiences are invited to join the family in welcoming home their beloved matriarch. As the revelries turn sour, and the imminent loss of the estate looms near, the world of the play cracks open, luring the audience into the subconscious world of Chekhov’s characters. We Will Return in the Spring is an opportunity to see past the seemingly flawless beauty of the cherry blossoms, dig into the soil, and expose what is poisoning the orchard at its roots.

The Living Altar Project is a multi-disciplinary performance piece honoring the lives of individuals killed in conflict, whether military or civilian, and regardless of origin, gender, religion, status, or profession.

Living Altars will be based on information gathered through surveys completed by those close to the deceased. The Living Altar Project asks the difficult question: what is a life worth?
