Family. Fidelity. Fatherhood. Fertility. Fairy tales. These are just some of the f-words invoked in Ragged Wing Ensemble’s second offering:

Splinters…and Other F-Words. Using the fairy tale of the Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson as a backbone, F-Words delves into the murky world of familial bonds and betrayals. Through a nonlinear sequence of fantasies and memories, F-Words juxtaposes the fairy tale with a modern search for happiness in relationships that are subject to an increasingly frozen and numbing society dictated by frenetic schedules, demanding careers, and lightning-speed technology.
