Laura is grieving - so why doesn’t it feel that way? With a little help from movie magic, come watch her try to grieve — the right way! On this kaleidoscopic journey, refracted through story, image, and media, we are left to ask: what is fiction and what is really us?

GLARE,  our first in person show since early 2020, was performed for small, outdoor audiences. The show was also livestreamed for the public.
