Description

Tomorrow’s Legs is made up of stories inspired by our memories, however true or false. Choreographer Tiffany Mills, experimental theater artist Peter Petralia, editing advisor Kay Cummings, and performers Jeffrey Duval, Luke Gutgsell, Whitney Tucker, and Petra van Noort, mix words and movement to excavate the past.

We remember a father’s surprising retort, a missing dog, and a forever-lost brother. These memories are triggered by a freshly squeezed orange, a tiny relic in the attic, and seven stitches above the eye. We intersect our collective past by traveling from Quito, Ecuador to Hamburg, Germany. Vicious partnering, delicate gestures, straight-up story telling and a touch of foolery combine as we dig into the crevices of our mind. Memory, with all its richness and failings, will be our connective tissue.
