Book Train-ing - A one troll show


Hesh has been posted by this bridge since it was first built. No one knows this spot quite like this dutiful bridge troll, who reports every detail that can be gathered to Superintendent of the Universe. But Hesh is not one to speak for the train or the oil it carries, the river, the rocks, or the particles of pollution. Ey prefers to act as a conduit for their songs. Weaving together the sung portrait of this spot across time and the elements to reveal the complex tangle of human structures and natural processes that make up the world as we inhabit it.

  • Appropriate for all ages - recommended for ages 8 and up
  • Ask about Train-ing as a fundraiser.

On Tour in 2018

I will be adapting the show for different regions and performing under freight bridges all over the US and Canada. But first I need your help to find suitable locations and local environmental / historical / educational / religious organizations to partner with. Reach out to help organize a performance in your area.
