The Precipice–Miranda Ferriss Jones
Fiscal Sponsor: Z Space
The Precipice is an original dark fairytale that is destined to be a genre-breaking piece of theater–a dazzling menage a trois between Cirque-du-Soleil, Alvin Ailey, and the Broadway hit Wicked, with a jazz twist. The Precipice merges multiple forms of storytelling on stage including mask work, puppetry, aerial dance, ballet, live music, and video projections. The multifaceted nature of the show merits a highly collaborative process that integrates an eclectic group of performers working together to create a spectacular theatrical production. A full-scale production of The Precipice is currently in development and was granted a competitive residency at Z Space, a premiere theater venue in San Francisco renowned for showcasing cutting-edge theater. Z space offers developmental support for new work, providing critical resources as well as institutional support to enable new shows like The Precipice to realize their full potential.
