WORLD PREMIERE | MUSIC-THEATRE

ThisTree

January 6 at 4PM | 7, 8, & 10–12 at 7:30PM | Post-show conversation on Jan 6 at HERE Mainstage

Dappled late-afternoon light bathes a clearing in the hand-crafted forest. Cellist/singer Leah Coloff emerges, trailing a 25-foot cape of tattered denim. Tracing the secrets of her family history, Coloff glides between idyllic childhood memories, unanswered questions and her roller coaster ride of fertility treatments. ThisTree weaves autobiographical storytelling, 8 mm home movies, and Coloff’s signature blend of blues, rock and non- traditional cello playing, supported by an all- female band, to investigate the vantage point of being the last branch on the family tree.
