Fall 2017 O Balthazar Press First Editions Catalogue
Paperback – 165 pages – Drama/Theater
The first published work by Romanian playwright and theater artist Ioana Jucan, Cosmology of Worlds Apart is a groundbreaking collection of short plays that returns the performer to the rightful role as shaman, oracle, disembodied enchantress, and kidnapped voice. With artwork by Rebecca Henriksen, Cosmology of Worlds Apart simultaneously inhabits the earthly and the heavenly, the tangible and the untouchable. Through a maximalist lense wherein beauty and suffering are one, Jucan’s words rip the very roof from the theater to let the rain wash onto the reader, the audience.
