DORA (70 minutes), written by Wendy Woodson, features two characters caught in an intense balancing act between visceral poetry and ferverish movement as they engage in tender and violent attempts to piece together lost memories of a shared mission and find new ground. Dora was inspired by stories of refugees and resistance fighters, Freud's Dora and the concept of solastalgia, defined as the pain one experiences when the place where one lives is under immediate asssault.
