unmoored is a spoken word & movement piece created by dance story innovator Sarah Chase in collaboration with dance artist Peggy Baker. Finely honed text, action, and staging create the framework for a performance of raw and searing emotion that addresses themes of love, disability, caregiving and death.
The work is one of total perfection as the heartbreaking text and Baker’s eloquent movement swing back and forth between darkness and light.
