Theater

Phantom Limb Company

 

For the past 10 years, relentlessly inquisitive theater artists Jessica Grindstaff and Erik Sanko have created onstage magic as a means to address current events and timeless mythologies. Their latest is a rippling meditation on water, heartbreak, and healing in response to the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster. In collaboration with Dai Matsuoka of dance troupe Sankai Juku, the work weaves flex dance, butoh, and Phantom Limb’s unique puppet theater into a visually arresting tapestry of collective experience and artistic alchemy.

“I would like for people to leave feeling hopeful,” Grindstaff said. “I would like for people to leave having seen the severity of what is happening in the environment through a deeply emotional lens, and feel like there’s something they can do.”
