Phoebe travels through a magical portal to a world where she must confront dancing tricksters and outsmart rhythmic doctors, journeying from her bedroom to the bottom of the ocean. All in an attempt to achieve the impossible: to find Percy Erebus.
Elephant Talk’s striking original score, clowning, and puppetry guide the audience on an allegorical journey of grief through the eyes of a child.
