The Awkward Art of Flying Lands at Fresno’s Rogue Festival 2014

by Claire Patton

We created The Awkward Art of Flying in a month and a half of whirlwind rehearsals. The whole thing began innocently enough. I sent my colleague, Lucia Rich, an email in a fit of enthusiasm, suggesting we collaborate on a project together. We've been friends and colleagues for years. We share the same physical theater training and love of quirky theatre. We'd collaborated on projects together–numerous examples of other people's visions. This would be different, I assured her; this project would be ours!
