Innovative poetry and movement unfurl in this physical theatrical experience. Savage/Love is a propulsive quest of a lonely man looking for love and serves as a prelude to Tongues, a passionate fever dream in which a dying man delivers his last rites. These stream of consciousness confessionals are performed with live original music created just for our production.
