Arthropoda is an aerial theatre production in development. The production is about navigating the fine line between supporting someone with mental illness or being in an abusive relationship. Crucially, the piece asks how we tell the difference between the two. The show also reveals a parallel story about lobsters, which are a kind of animal with an exoskeleton called an Arthropod or Arthropoda. The door to a lobster trap does not close. It’s wide open. The lobster just can’t figure out how to get out. How do we identify our traps? And once we do, how do we escape?
