“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” Chief Seattle
One woman’s theatrical foray into the worlds of nature and technology
In seven pieces ranging from magical realism to comic satire, NATURAL/NOT NATURAL takes us from the wild winds of the Costa Rican cloud forest to the elephants of Botswana, from the desks of medical billing offices to the intricacies of an iPhone 7, exploring Mother Earth and microchips as Ms. Singer morphs from observer to participant. Aided by “The Woman in Black” who is everything from prop mistress to midwife, and featuring a performance by acclaimed belly-dancer Donna Barrett, this show invites us to grieve over our losses and celebrate our silliness.
