Feature Performance

The Taste of Sunrise

March 13 – 22, 2015

Experience part two of the world premiere of Suzan Zeder’s richly lyrical Ware Trilogy.

The Taste of Sunrise takes place in the mind and memory of Tuc, from the fever dreams of his childhood that took his hearing, to the language that he shares with his father of the natural world, to the deaf school where his mind explodes with the discovery of sign language. An ensemble of Deaf and hearing directors, designers, and actors invite you to explore the cultural complexities of deafness with humor and compassion.
