Storm CountryA Headphone Play

by Nick Salvato & Aoise Stratford

September 9-18, 2016

Ithaca’s first exploration in the emerging form of “headphone theater,” The Cherry Arts’ Storm Country immerses audiences in a world of voices, music, and environmental sounds as they travel among the ghosts of Ithaca’s West End. Inspired by Tess Of The Storm Country, the wildly successful 1909 novel based in Ithaca, Storm Countryinterweaves the strands of Tess’s melodrama with the hidden histories of the neighborhood where they took place. Doing soStormCountry explores the issues that remain as vital in today’s Ithaca as they are in the novel: finding home and being denied it, trespassing and security, the power of the water to transform and be transformed.
