Sheathed

by Maggie Lee

Directed by Amy Poisson

In the aftermath of a devastating war between clans, two swordswomen try to find their way forward in this strange new world of peace: one trying to escape her past, and the other driven by an inherited thirst for revenge. When your very existence is defined by your blade, how do you keep the violence within yourself sheathed? A tale of an unlikely friendship tested by the bonds of honor and the terrible price of forgiveness, “Sheathed” combines movement and storytelling in an exciting new way to explore the emotional depths of why we fight.  STARRING: Ayo Tushinde, Sunam Ellis, Fune Tautala, Maile Wong, Natalie Berg, Isis King, Dylan Smith  PRODUCTION TEAM: Amy Poisson (Director), Anna Ly (Assistant Director), Parmida Ziaei (Scenic & Props Design), Johanna Melamed (Sound Design), Jocelyne Fowler (Costume Design), May Nguyen Lee (Stage Combat Designer), Alyza Del-pan Monley (Movement Choreographer), Alison Kozar (Co-Stage Manager), Kirk Vande Brake (Co-Stage Manager), with original music composed and performed by Leanna Keith (Music Director).
