Betsy Tobin's METAPHOR examines the intricacies of human relationships

In each piece of theater she creates, Betsy Tobin tries to find an unusual way to present her work. For her newest show, METAPHOR, she delves into the complicated realm of relationships using circus arts, puppetry, video projects and more to portray the tangled webs woven by human interaction. In advance of the premiere of METAPHOR, which runs this weekend at the Dairy Center for the Arts, we caught up with Tobin to talk about the many inspirations for this unique, non-linear performance.
