In the summer of 2015, Erin Brubacher and Christine Brubaker walked 700km over 32 days because of no more or less than a shared name. A stranger asked if they were walking to learn how to be together: this was certainly part of it. They spent some nights in motels and tree-hung hammocks, but the majority of evenings they were hosted by strangers. They walked through cities, towns and state forests; on country roads, shoulders of small highways, hiking trails and train tracks.

This July, exactly one year after their first kilometre on foot together, Christine and Erin will set-up shop in The Theatre Centre Incubator. With the direction of Christopher Stanton and design from Simon Rabyniuk, they will develop a performance combining storytelling, documentary theatre, memory, myth, and extreme physicality in the traces of an embodied journey.

7th Cousins is an automythography: Truth, tales, and what’s in the spaces in between a shared and imagined past, present and future.
