A play about a queer skeleton’s efforts to decolonize their marrow and learn to hear the moon. An athletic, theatrical exploration of inter-species kinship, adaptation, and the threat of extinction. Transformational costumes and a soaring original musical score propel us through 450 million years of lunar tidal impulses and complex relations. BLOOD BAG looks to express gratitude and explore notions of sacrifice, reciprocity, and debt. What can we learn about patience, fortitude, and inter-dependence from our primordial ancestors and the making of this collaborative, hand-made clown show?
