Ceremony and performance at once, New Fire follows one woman’s nightscape journeying upon the eve of her 52nd birthday, NEW FIRE is a contemporary story about getting and staying ‘well’ in an amnesiac America. Along the way, she encounters tricksters and allies of every ilk to act as her guides on a road to re-membering a stolen past. Humorous antics interwoven with the dramatic, both mythological and mundane, NEW FIRE impels us to wonder of the place of the sacred in our lives and its correspondence to human acts of violence. The play serves as a living reminder of a more balanced cosmos, where the female once held place among the gods.
