somewhere in the desert
by Beth Golison (she/her)

Rona follows the songs of the earth through the desert to find a mythical haven called a city. Many years earlier, Beth follows the rhythm of the city to avoid stillness. somewhere in the desert is a solo storytelling piece about fighting for survival in a dysfunctional post-climate apocalypse world, and about fighting for survival in a dysfunctional body.
