“hOMAge” is an original, physical theater exploration devised by The Clearing Collaborative Ensemble and directed by Natanya Ruth Silverman, inspired by the letters and poetry of her grandmother, Hella Kurth (“Oma” in German), a WWII refugee, cancer survivor and yogini. It is part narrative, part movement piece and it incorporates song and dance. It is devised and performed by an all female ensemble of choreographers, musicians, and actors dressed in white, who create the physical and emotional world of the story and bring the words and wisdom of Kurth to life. Choreographed, written and designed by its five-member ensemble.
