Event Description

Adrienne Wehr and Frank Ferraro


World Premiere at the New Hazlett Theater


Friday & Saturday, September 22-23, 2017 @ 8:00pm


Sunday, September 24, 2017 @ 2:00pm


What happens when we look in a mirror? Do we witness a reflection of our true selves or the sum of the ghosts that travel with us? Utilizing a range of disciplines to conjure their personal ghosts, veteran artists Frank Ferraro and Adrienne Wehr take us on a fearless journey of life on life’s terms.


This world premiere is the result of a two-year collaboration between Wehr and Ferraro. In sharing their own stories with each other, they recognized universal themes common to us all, inspiring them to bring these stories to life through spoken word, video, original music, installation art, soundscapes, and more.


In the Company of Ghosts resides at the intersection of actual experience, perceived memory, and transformation. Ferraro, diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 15 years ago, provides a personal glimpse into his altered reality, while Wehr reveals how challenge reigns as our greatest teacher. Both remind us, that regardless the obstacle along the way, acceptance, release, and triumph are indeed possible after all.
