For more than 35 years, Doug Berky has toured his performance work of physical comedy, mask theatre and storytelling for audiences of all ages. Among other stories, Berky presents his unique take on Korean folktale The Tiger’s Whisker, a story of a young woman’s journey to find healing and wholeness for her husband who has been traumatized by war. A mountain healer sends her on a quest to find a special ingredient for a potion that will help her husband. What she learns from this quest, the search for the tiger’s whisker, is as relevant today as it was in ancient times.
