The synopsis written from the director herself:
"The Clearing's hOMAge explores a woman's break from the inherited trauma of the past for the sake of fearless, self-affirming creation.hOMAge, an original, devised ensemble piece, finds its inspiration in the letters and poetry of Hella Kurth, the director’s “Oma” (German for grandmother), a World War II and cancer survivor, who was never at a loss for words when it came to describing the beautiful struggle inherent in a meaningful life. A yoga practitioner for over 50 years, Oma reminds us to look to nature and to the past for the inspiration to be your most expressive and generous self."
