"In North, Heather Christian and her kitchen sink orchestra 'The Arbornauts' lovingly hybridize pre-1700 classical pieces, original music and post 1960's pop. The unique Baroque infused setting is a crystalline outdoor living room with a moving visual circus of oddities and silhouettes that includes 12 narrating television screens, a puppet show and a moving arboretum. North is a multi-media, multidisciplinary production about storytelling and love and distance, featuring a wide array of music from Carmina Burana to Cyndi Lauper along with Christian's own work," explain press notes.
