JooWan Kim (Composer); Marc Brew (Choreographer); and Star Finch (Playwright)

A woman asks of the world, “Nothing feels real anymore…what could you possibly still believe in?” Featuring internationally-renowned, revolutionary Bay Area musicians, dancers, and theater artists, this immersive, experiential journey will drop you into an eerily familiar and surreal day in this woman’s life. Come witness the ever-present questions in your mind come to life, dance to exhaustion, and find breath in this enveloping expression of our humanity.

This multi-disciplinary vision unites JooWan Kim, a pianist/composer who integrates classical compositional techniques with hip hop for his orchestral Ensemble Mik Nawooj; Crowded Fire Theater Company, which has 20 years experience developing innovative new plays that break traditional boundaries; and AXIS Dance Company, an ensemble that is changing the face of dance and disability.
