Facebook event Nested (3).png

Using live music and movement, Nested explores family and separation. Inspired by the 2018 US administration's actions towards refugees, Nested takes place in and around a large nest, which belongs to a creature. When a stranger enters the creature's space, they are asked to reconsider what it might mean to be a 'good host'. Nested invites audience members to consider what the word 'home' might really mean.
