Faith Healing is an original dance/theater piece that takes the story line of Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie as its point of departure. The company’s approach to the play is a distillation of elements, focusing on the musicality and rhythm of language, the telling psychology of movement and the visualization of fantasy.
