The World Is Round Is Round Is Round

From a  Gertrude Stein story "for children and philosophers," TWIRIRIR is adapted and directed by Karin Coonrod with music by Gina Lishman.


TWIRIRIR brings into tension the idea of identity with an unceasingly whirling world and questions how and what do we see... what and how do we hear. The story's community includes nine-year-old Rose, her cousin Willie  and the various animals - wild and domesticated - that surround them . It is journey play in which Rose battles the darkness and climbs the mountain into new awareness and is  full of Stein's wit , imagination and a touch of her unmistakable anarchy. It is played by a company of five women (all Rose at one time or another) and one musician.
