Helga is a simple woman who lives a simple life, secluded in the American back country with her pink bb gun, hair rollers, and high heels. She was raised by her grandfather who suffered from dementia and believed that the Civil War was still raging just outside their gate. Nowhere is safe and no one can be trusted. Helga stays on her land, isolated from modern society, with only her books to read and her crops to sow. One day, however, she receives a letter that propels her and her Greek chorus of Helga lookalikes on an epic adventure into the throws of modern society. Every experience is new, fresh, and astonishing.
Works in the Helga Series combine clowning, classic modern dance, physical theater, and farm tools to portray the innocent, yet strong will of Helga as she deals with general universal quandaries.
