The smallest pebble can upset even the largest cart. – Bulgarian Proverb

Dixon Place and Terra Incognita Theater present the world premiere of the Pebble-and-Cart Cycle: one-line tragedies.

A woman battles a fly. Father has a horse attack. Brother turns into a goat. Inspired by the Bulgarian proverb “The smallest pebble can upset even the largest cart,” the Pebble-and-Cart Cycle: one-line tragedies unveils a spellbinding, surreal journey where folk legend, animal archetype, personal experience and religious rite weave together to expose the theater of inner conflict. This installment features the first three parts of the six-part cycle -- "Moocha: I have a fly on my plate,” "Horse: I have my heart in front of me" and "Goat: I cannot get into my own shoe” -- each conceived and directed by Polina Klimovitskaya (“Red Beads,” Mabou Mines).
