The SummerWorks Performance Festival

Using a blend of physical theatre, shadow puppetry, and projections, Rootless traces the path of a young woman cut off from the land she loves. As an outsider in her new home and facing loss, she travels through a world of dreams, djin, talking animals, a mermaid in the desert, and the moon to find solace. (
