Lamia

Lamia is a serpent that yearns to be human. She watches the life of a man she desires unfold, helpless to attract his attention. When a stranger offers her the chance to assume a womanly form, she must carry her shameful secret with her, lest her true identity destroy them both. Part dance, part live-music and part theater, Lamia explores the lengths we go to and what we compromise to reach the promise of love.
