The Back Pack Presents WEAR AND TEAR
WEAR AND TEAR- A fast-paced movement-based comedy extravaganza creatively combining non-spoken performance, music, dance, and media, this time plopped in the round, for an "all sides are our good side" viewing experience.

The Back Pack also welcomes aboard lighting design extraordinaire, Jacqueline Sindelar, who will be working her magic to blast them off to new a new dimension of dance theatre bliss.
