A new play with music
A mammoth-elephant hybrid, released into the Arctic for a geoengineering experiment to prevent the worst of climate change, tries to create a future for herself in uncharted territory. Meanwhile, three generations of women traverse the ancient relationship between humans and elephants. A prismatic, time-warping exploration into the experience of otherness and the ways we change ourselves by changing nature.
