HOME IS WHERE: a senior theater thesis
An evening of two original performances:

a solo performance created and performed by Camilla Dely
a story of coming home, told with christmas lights and crab shells. 


created with performers Amelia Couderc, Erica Rice & Christina Stella 

From within their isolated shelter in a devastated world, their only job is to listen: for contact, a message, a sign of life. As the waiting becomes unbearable, they are both haunted and preserved by their memories of home. How will they hold onto them in this new ritualized existence? 


All shows @ 8:30PM

Performances are FREE! Please email Anu Goedhart at to reserve a seat.
