This surrealistic musical is conceived, written and composed by Peter Dizozza, a noted abstractionist of musical theater. It is about the outrageous adventures of characters dedicated to creating harmony between humanity and the natural world. It uses music, poetry, comedy, drama and dance to symbolically picture the process of adjustment to a great loss. Two surviving members of the Floater Family go out of their element (water) to experience life on land, air and fire. In doing so, they unite with three other “elemental” families–the Farmers, the Flyers and the Flames–to make one extended family. Music is folk rock musical theater with oceanic melodies and harmonies. Francesse Maingrette directs.
