Performance | Journey Around My Bedroom: Live Interactive Theater (virtual)


In Journey Around My Bedroom, Xavi is a little girl with a big imagination, stranded alone in her bedroom. When a mysterious visitor drops by looking for a missing part to fix his magical flying machine, they explore the hidden depths of her room and use the power of imagination to turn her isolation into an epic indoor voyage. Loosely inspired by a work of the same title by the 18th-century French writer Xavier de Maistre -- a peculiar travelogue conceived during six-weeks of house arrest - that transformed his confinement into a fresh perspective on his life. Written by Dianne Nora Lyrics by Dianne Nora & Hyeyoung Kim Songs and Music by Hyeyoung Kim Directed by Jaclyn Biskup Featuring Laura Kay, Starr Kirkland, Ashley Kristeen Vega
