Synopsis: A vision of surfing, embodied by pro surfer Kassia Meador, appears as in a dream and inspires a woman to return to the water after a devastating loss. Surrounded by a diverse group of female surfers, she paddles out and they perform a ritual of connection to each other and to the ocean that is a refuge for them all.
As a director I am interested in bringing the technologies of theatre, dance and film together in experimental ways to tell stories that resonate.
