In 2011, Tannis Kowalchuk had a major stroke. To augment her rehabilitation, Kowalchuk devised her own theatre physical therapy in an attempt to regain her abilities and skills as a performer, musician, and stilt walker. STRUCK is about neurology, the workings of the mind, and one woman's walk on the razor's edge between life and death.

Based on a true story. A baby girl chimpanzee is adopted by a psychologist and his wife in suburban Oklahoma in the mid-1960's, and raised as their human daughter. Featuring an international cast of physical theatre performers and puppetry, LUCY is the story of unlikely friendship and unconditional love, exploring the bonds that tie humans to our closest animal relative, the chimpanzee.
