Henry Bishop is a 30-minute piece that tells the story of Henry Bishop, a lonely centaur who has the body of a sheep instead of a horse. Isolated from the satyrs, centaurs, and the world of men, Henry Bishop spends his days knitting, writing haikus, and tending to his flock of sheep until he meets the tree nymph Sylph, who takes him on a journey to see her home tree. The story of how Henry Bishop discovers himself is told through narrative movement devised by the ensemble.
