One of Rainier climbers was co-founder of The Cabiri

From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

The Seattle performance troupe The Cabiri is dedicating “Tewaz,” its upcoming new show at Cornish Playhouse, to troupe co-founder John Mullally, one of a group of six climbers and guides who died climbing Mount Rainier late last month.

According to Cabiri publicist Jennifer Rice, in addition to working for Microsoft for more than 20 years, Mullally, 40, was a co-founder and board member of The Cabiri, a company that incorporates aerial choreography, puppetry and acrobatics in its explorations of myth.  He formed the troupe with John Murphy in 1999, and Mullally’s Linked In page lists him as providing “grantwriting, strategic planning, and development support” for the organization.

“Tewaz” is the first installment in The Cabiri’s  “Tea Trilogy,” inspired by ancient folk tales from the Eastern Mediterranean and North Africa. It plays at the Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center June 6-14.
