Based on a Western interpretation of the classic story, Clara’s Christmas Eve begins in her plains Victorian home in Laramie, WY, 1892.  In her dream journey, Clara encounters outlaw, saloon-girl, and bandit mice who battle cavalry soldiers.  Clara’s fantasy takes her under snow-covered boughs by her home where she watches snowflakes dancing in the night sky.  The Nutcracker Prince leads her to a fête of dancing ornaments in the branches of her Christmas tree.

Based on the epic story of Inanna, great goddess of the early Sumerian Culture, whose stories come to us from Cuneiform clay tablets dating 1900 BCE.  Born of the first civilization from which we have texts, Inanna’s descent to the Underworld to confront her dark sister Erishkigal presents familiar issues of loyalty, ambition, greed, devotion, and what it is to be civilized.


You will go to the underworld half the year.

Your sister, since she has asked, will go the other half.

On the day you are called, that day you will be taken.

On the day your sister is called, that day you will be set free.

Holy Erishkegal, great is your name.
