This original dance/theater piece, a musing on the five senses, was developed collaboratively by the MA advanced dance and theater students and their teachers. The text is based, in part, on verbatim transcripts of interviews conducted by the cast exploring the five senses.

The interview subjects include a food critic who lost her sense of taste, an Ikebana artist (Japanese flower arranging), a winemaker, a psychic, a man in his 70s who swims in the bay, a 16-year-old ballerina, a blind woman, a sign language teacher, a visual artist, a film sound designer, a disabled dancer, an Oakland zoo intern, a sanitation district worker, a music teacher.

In addition, it includes texts by former English teachers Eugenie Chan and Sara Houghteling and alumnus Peter Sinn Nachtrieb '92. Sound design is by Zac Mathe '13.

Friday tickets are available in the box office only, one hour before show time There are plenty of Friday and Saturday night tickets available.
