Embrace Theatre is proud to partner with MuD Collective to present Elemental, a double-bill of brand new solo-shows: Many Fires written by Charlie Peters and On the Rocks Danielle Altrogge.

Artistic disciplines collide when poetry, monologue, clown, original music, and puppetry are used to explore gender, sexuality, and healing.
