Mr. Snow runs the theatre program at The Phlogiston Foundation, a fictional reformatory for women who have committed violent crimes but who have remarkable aptitudes in science, technology and art. The audience arrives expecting to see the inmates perform The Tempest, but on this night, the performance is delayed when the wrong costumes and props arrive . Events arise from this mishap that will forever alter the course of The Tempest, the prisoners’ lives and our own notions of creativity.

Watching Hancock’s elaborate environmental piece, DEVIANT CRAFT, is like cutting into what looks like an ordinary cake and discovering it has twenty layers, each with a different flavor and consistency.  Don’t ask what kind of cake it is.  Just dig in.

Rigorously metaphysical …  rough magic has never been more raw, more visionary.
