Hip Pocket Theatre presents Walking On Wire (Stories from the Feet)
Hip Pocket Theatre’s 45th season continues with the world premiere of Walking on Wire: Stories from the Feet, directed by Lorca Simons and Lake Simons.
In a production devised by the ensemble, sisters Lorca and Lake bring to the stage a spirited group of Texas creatives. Through the magic of collaboration and improvisation, the ensemble presents an inventive and poetic series of stories through the use of visually striking imagery. The action invites the audience to consider, as Gabrielle Roth has profoundly asked, “What will we find on the other side of all that we know?”
