Torch Sisters: La Caverne

photos by Branden Nall

On Friday, March 22 Eau Claire's own performance group the Torch Sisters staged their first original show, La Caverne, in Pablo Center at the Confluence's Jamf Theater. The show was a blend of aerial artistry, flow arts, and burlesque paying homage to turn-of-the-century Eau Claire resident Maud Phillips, aka the poet Violet Leigh – an outspoken rebel who spent time in and out of mental institutions and who, for a brief time, famously lived in a cave along the Eau Claire River.
