Abbale, a dance-theater memoir, weaves together the true stories of 3 fatherly relationships, spanning 3 decades and 3 different cultures, as one man tries to understand just what it means to fill Daddy’s shoes. With compelling nuance and deep introspection, dance and theater collide through a series of moving stories and provocative choreography, getting at the heart of what it means to be a child, a lover, and a creator.
