Synopsis

At times of great upheaval in our lives--during events that crack us wide open--we suddenly get a unique perspective on our past. Has the sum of our experiences been a long battle between opposing parts of our self? Who won? Why? At what cost? Slipspace is an exploration of that turmoil through the story of a young artist struggling to make sense of personal tragedy. It is one part homage to the theatre itself as a medium of vulnerability and enduring vitality. It is another part debate about why we often choose an easier path. Slipspace strives to ask "Where are the guide lines between freedom and indulgence, dreams and practicality, weakness and strength? How do we redraw those lines when tragedy compels us to do so?"
