Studio Theater in Exile presents The Rebirth Project

What happens when you being together visual artists, composers, and a dancer?  Answer: The Rebirth Project

Bibianna Matheis, photographer, Barbara Korman, sculptor, Poet Gold, poet and performer, Mara Mills, director, Jeremy Gratt, composer, and Miranda Runyon, dancer, and choreographer, came together to as Barbara Korman put it  – because “Down deep, at the molecular heart of life we’re essentially identical to trees.” (Carl Sandberg). That relationship between human and tree was the seed that brought The Rebirth Project to life. Add Susan Obrant’s costuming and the work is complete.

Humans and trees have an intimate connection. We climb their branches when we are young and sit in their shade when we are old. We make love underneath them and hide behind their trunks when we are sad. We fall asleep to the lullaby of their leaves.

All art genres have been inspired by nature and, especially trees. At our best we recognize the kinship. If we listen, we’ll understand the language of trees as we did as children climbing into the boughs. The Rebirth Project brings that intimacy back.

Come celebrate the season and the tress at STUDIO THEATER IN EXILE is now housed at Hudson Valley MOCA.
