A new commission from the Playhouse for the WOW Festival. At the waters edge a fantasy emerges from the sea. Epic and intimate, and spun round the mythic birth of Aphrodite, goddess of beauty love and desire, a performance of specially constructed puppets enchant and invite us to dream awake before they return from whence they came. Accompanied by japanese master musician Yumiko Tanaka's  live soundscape the audience will gather on the sands of beautiful la Jolla Shores for this one of a kind event.
