At the Barre

Book & Lyrics: Steven Meeker | Music: Sarah Flaim


Catherine, the talented principal dancer at ABT with the weight of the world on her shoulders, and Shawn, a non-binary, overweight mime with gender identity and self-esteem issues, as well as their Inner Selves, are thrust into each other’s lives after an insane audition. Despite the bombardment of mime, ballet, combat, slapstick, music, and an always-changing and invasive ensemble, At the Barre focuses on how one finds their beauty and finds a genuine connection in a cluttered and overly talkative world.


At the Barre has been in residence at the Dragon’s Egg Studio in Ledyard, CT.
