For That Which Returns is an innovative collaboration between two companies on the forefront of aerial performance: Baltimore’s In-Flight Theater (Mara Neimanis), “…makes the impossible look supremely easy” (The Washington Post); and Washington’s award-winning Arachne Aerial Arts (Andrea Burkholder and Sharon Witting), “whose sense of teamwork and precision is akin to migrating birds flying in formation” (The Washington Post).
Aerial choreography and dialogue retell the myth of Demeter and Persephone, as Mara, Andrea and Sharon mine their own personal experiences to reveal the seasons of connection between mothers and daughters.
