Phantom Limb, established in 2007 by Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff, is an innovative theatrical and production design company that places emphasis on collaboration and creating holistic artistic experiences.
In Phantom Limb’s 69?S., a vestige from Antarctica’s past is reignited by a contemporary crisis, uniting the harrowing and heroic tale of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 trans-Antarctic expedition with the realities of a changing environment and the planet’s uncertain future. Phantom Limb (Jessica Grindstaff & Erik Sanko, Co-Artistic Directors) is joined by an extraordinary team of multi-disciplinary collaborators, melding theater, dance, puppetry, photography, film, original contemporary music and an unconventional acoustic palette to create a stunning and evocative series of tableaux vivants that follows a group of gentlemen frozen (literally) in crisis. 69?S. is an artistic and emotional journey that explores the symbiotic relationship between humans and the environment and reinvigorates the spirit of foregoing individual glory for the sake of collective survival.
