Shark Eat Muffin Announces the Premiere of THE SPACE BETWEEN MY HEAD AND MY BODY
Fresh, New Theatre Company, Shark Eat Muffin, celebrates their second performance this season with the much-anticipated US premier of Catie O'Keefe's play, The Space Between my Head and my Body directed by Laura Boggs.
Show Description: The Space Between my Head and my Body explores the lives of seven people whose paths collide in flight on an airplane. In the unquantifiable space between departure and arrival, male and female, physical body and identity, we examine what defines each one of them. As the characters weave in and out of different times and spaces, different flights and even different bodies, they remain connected by the same journey. A journey that is forever pushing forward towards the fate of the passengers, their relationship to one another and their own survival in a sea of lost travellers.
The show was produced at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and was published in 2010 by Original Works Publishing.
This production will be part of the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival.
