About the project and the company

Theater of Possibility is staging the world premiere of  Love Letters – A True-Ly Short Epistolory Romance, by award-winning nonspeaking autistic poet Sofia Ghassaei, wth songs by autistic nonspeakers, June 15-18, at University Heights Center, Seattle.   Two nonspeaking autistic young adults fall in love over email, only to be confronted by sensory and phsical realities when they meet in person.  I am looking for a choreographer/movement coach to collaborate with me in staging three song numbers that call for some simple dance or choreographed movement, and possibly provide movement coaching for a couple short sequnces in the play.   Cast of five professional performers.

This is a small, contained project, with an opporutnity to contribute to a beauitful, meaningful work.

Rehearses and performs at Univeristy Heights Center, now through June 15 (see detailed schedule below).
