Read about the "WHY" behind Remain in Light...
"An intelligent and playful look at the tenets and tools of the positive psychology movement... this gentle, quietly uplifting and admirably complex piece offers not just an evening’s entertainment but insight and concrete suggestions on how to make peace with life as a human being."
"This kaleidoscopic, physical collage tackles some of the biggest questions facing us today... the joyous play slides in and out of the darkness in rhythms as recognizable as a heartbeat... It presents the finest dramatization of something difficult, slippery, and internal... It’s a reminder to be here in the moment and here for one another. Who among us couldn’t use that?"
ABOUT THIS PLAY
Remain in Light is:
- a collage of movement, moments, songs, and visions.
- a practical handbook for being a better whatever you already are.
- a show for anyone seeking more joy and well being.
After a series of encounters with the science and philosophy of the mind, an ordinary woman begins the difficult journey of learning to make a life worth living. The route is marked by grit and gratitude, loving kindness and living with purpose, and the realization that other people really do matter. Confronting her own heartache against a backdrop of contemporary confusion, she struggles to stay on the path.
