Synopsis

A lonely Condor and the beautiful Chaska fall hopelessly in love. Fortune, however, is not these lovers' friend because Chaska is not another bird but a wingless shepherd girl. In the merciless but beautiful Andes, the joy and pain of first love between a demigod who yearns for companionship and a girl who must leave her poverty-stricken family to ascend to the skies unfolds.

A Girl without Wings immerses spectators in a whimsical puppet world where a Native-Andean folktale is reborn amidst wicked hummingbirds darting through the air, brightly colored threads of prayer that reach for the gods and a storm of shoes that rains from the sky.  In this new play for all audiences, a contemporary riff of a timeless tale comes to life and we witness the painful steps that only brave ones take to pursue their happiness.
