Quote from the Iowa Now Article - "The show uses the world of fairy tales as its jumping-off point; Out of the Pan features elements such as outrageous physical imagery and movement, monstrous characters, and impossible narrative, combined with video design. The subject matter, however, deals with things found in our modern world. 'We use the construct of a fairy tale world to tell a contemporary story,' says Dominique Serrand, co-founder of the Moving Company and director. 'For many people, the future seems doomed. People are without work, people are trying to figure out what tomorrow brings. These feelings are reaching a larger segment of the population. Our story documents poverty and loneliness, but it is not without hope—far from it, in fact.'"
