The performance runs 75min with a reception and dialogue to follow. A walking performance that brings audiences on a visceral journey through the seven stages of grief through music, movement, imagery, and local testimony. A re-imagining of Dante Alighieri’s Purgatorio, the performance tells the story of an American afterlife, a surreal landscape where audiences experience hidden connections between environmental ruin and social oppression.



Children of the Wild is a company-in-resident at Double Edge Theatre in Ashfield, MA.


This performance is made possible in part by the City of Holyoke, the Holyoke Creative Arts Center’s ARTery project, the Wauregan Building, and MIFA Victory Theatre.
