WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In the 1950s world of Grand Rounds, a 10-year-old inspired by the adventures of Cherry Ames, nurse and amateur sleuth, turns her perceptive gaze on the rituals of family life. What goes on behind closed doors and on the radio is fodder for her scientific reckonings. Director and choreographer Tamar Rogoff invites audiences to sit bedside to share the intimacy that propels her protagonist on a rescue mission of her own. The action takes place in and around six beds, in open spaces, on a hospital floor, in a graveyard, and in the imagination of this curious child. With an ensemble of differently abled performers, Rogoff charts a journey through life's passages, widening our circle of connection and understanding for this world premiere performance.
