Brandin Steffensen - Finding GertrudeSunday, February 3rd, 2013 at 11AM

A show for all ages of imagination.
Reality is sometimes hiding where you least expect it, and there are friendly mysterious creatures along the way. Fungi wear red pumps and Ravens’ songs are amplified electronically; Ballerinas indicate a course along which common sense yields to unfamiliar syntax. To find a thing you must leave home. There is Comfort in satellites telling you where to go from A to Z, but what about trying to find something in your own back yard where you think you know you left it. Nouns and Verbs have shadows underneath them, and Z to A may be the quickest way of Finding Gertrude.
The cast of creatures is in search of their God Mother, Gertrude, and they need your help to find her. Finding Gertrude is episodic dance, music, and theater that will delightfully perplex you and your little ones.
