Other Inland Empires

 collaborator + performer 

Shimmering between here/now, then/there, this place/another place, Other Inland Empires is a new stage performance that traces the Jewish roots of surf culture from Europe to California and back again. Pop music meditations, inflatable palm trees, slow dances, and untold family stories mix with playful humour, seagulls, and the one and only Gidget.
