Snow was performed under a constant flurry of snow. It is an anthology, consisting of multiple narratives framed by a single recurring one, loosely adopted from Alain Robbe-Grillet’s In The Labyrinth. Other sources of inspiration include Yuki Onna (Snow Woman) from Lafcadio Hearn’s collection of Japanese ghost story entitled "Kwaidan" and the short story "The Snow-Image" by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Snow is a meditation on human suffering and storytelling. The script for this production was published by TCG.
