Performed in collaboration with the audience, a place called the middle is a participatory journey to a mythical hometown called "the middle," a place where the earth moves so slowly that its inhabitants live for only half a day. The performance explores the idea of remembering, returning, and reliving. Are we always traveling? How do we see and help each other in the middle of our own stories?
