Movements of the Wind
Cast: 3 female, 2 male (flexible casting)
Genre: dark comedy/drama/family
Set: minimalist, impressions of a garden, flower and greenhouse
Running time: Approximately 55-65 minutes
As wind sweeps through a garden, its inhabitants must confront the volatile effects of Mother Nature, as well as their own changing nature. The story follows several short, intertwined pieces, as Carrot and Potato, taught to be enemies from birth, struggle to remain friends, Tulip wants more out of life than only her partner, and two pieces of pollen attempt to make a dangerous jump from a dying flower to a fresh one. Through sacrifice and friendship, they must not only survive their trials, but also come to populate another generation.
