Event Details

This deaf and hard-of-hearing-friendly piece, Created by Shizuka Kai, Randi Edmundson, and Jess Amy Shead, is a beautifully told story using puppetry, real wildlife footage, and an original score to take the audience on an immersive journey.

When little Shizu hides in her Otosan’s suitcase and secretly travels to his most dangerous destination, The North, her presence is a big surprise and an even bigger nuisance to her gruff, no-nonsense father. Facing snowy owls, white wolves and grizzly bears, Otosan and Shizu combat challenges together, eventually learning how to communicate their love.

The story is inspired by Co-creator Shizuka Kai’s real-life experience with her father, a wildlife videographer.

Public performances on February 22.
