Time bombs, monsters, speeding bus drivers, getting hugged by someone you don’t like – these are some of the more than 150 fears that stalk the stage in choreographer Kim Epifano’s extraordinary multimedia performance “Fears of Your Life.”

Based on a book of the same name written by Michael Bernard Loggins, an artist with developmental disabilities at San Francisco’s Creativity Explored, Epifano’s new work explores our relationship with the sometimes serious and often humorous things that scare each of us. AXIS Dance Company, a critically-acclaimed company that integrates dancers with and without disabilities, performs the work on a stage that is transformed by Loggins’ distinctive drawings into a vibrant and interactive world of art and animation, puppetry and poetry. Puppets by Michael Stasiuk.

Awards:
