Two is a Prime Number title

- World Premiere


Written by: Anna Watts
Directed by: Jason Paul Tate

Two is a Prime Number > > At its core, Two is A Prime Number is a universal story, told through movement, poetry, and scenes, about what it means to fall in love, to fall out of love, to be in love, and the fundamental problem of intensely loving someone who may be completely wrong for you. It has evolved through workshopping, experimentation, and molding the text to fit performers who are working with it.
