A striking dream world… one of the most ambitious pieces we have ever presented’ (Anna Woo, The Getty Villa)

California’s marijuana country: the still-Wild West. Annie conducts a forensic exploration of ‘the facts’ about her outlaw weed farmer brother as this genre-bending work slips into disputed territory: childhood memories. Sleight of hand, athletic virtuosity and a scenic coup de théâtre transform the stage into a dreamscape. Borders between self and other vanish and reappear and small disputes quickly grow violent, recalling younger days: as siblings, as a nation, as a democracy – how far have we really come?
