Finding Avi

A Developing Immersive Work

poster art by Rachel Minier
Once upon a time (neither here nor elsewhere but somewhere in between), there was and there was not a child…

Finding Avi sends the audience searching for a single child inside a map made from scraps of a community's own queer history and fragments of re-imagined fairy tales.

What we record and mythologize in our history shapes the possibilities we see in our future as children, as adults, and as everything in between. Finding Avi embraces young, queer people and their ability to make their own choices (and mistakes) while learning who they are – and where they find joy.
