About the show: DIVISADERO: A PERFORMANCE examines themes of memory, identity, love and the grip of the past on the present, and tells a story of a family that is forever changed by a single, violent event that sets fire to the rest of their lives. The production explores the intimate relationship between the speaker and the listener, and of language's ability to weave a magical spell.
