ABOUT DIPPED IN LOVE

Dipped in Love depicts the story of three women from vastly different cultures--Japan, America, and India--whose lives unexpectedly intersect in America, blooming into love and friendship. It follows their stories as loss, love, and the power of friendship transform their lives, leading to revelation, self-discovery, and self-empowerment.  

Dipped in Love was first developed at Mu Performing Arts under the mentorship and stage direction of Jennifer Weir . In 2007 Mu selected and produced Dipped in Love for its New Directions Festival at Mixed Blood Theater. Mu produced Dipped again at Mixed Blood for the 2008 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Dipped garnered wonderful audience Fringe reviews (5 out of 5 ratings) and excellent reviews in the Star Tribune and Lavender Magazine.

In March 2018 Theater KinderSpace presented a sold-out public staged reading of Dipped in Love translated by Momoko Tanno, leading to a successful, fully staged co-production with Full Circle Theater in September 2019 directed by Kazuki Harada.
