Join us for composer Ellen Reid and librettist Roxie Perkins' sobering story that follows a mother and daughter as they struggle to explore the trauma of sexual abuse and the elasticity of memory that can follow in its wake. This eerily distinct sonic world erupts with vibrant color and manipulated sounds to set the tone (literally) to this important production directed by James Darrah.

"p r i s m" is free to stream for two weeks, starting January 26 at 4:00 pm PT.
