 Premiering April 2018

A bell is rung, a glass of water ceremoniously downed, and the audience enters into a gentle, stimulating,  interactive meditation on love. The project was inspired by a challenge to live for 40 days and 40 nights making all choices based in Love, and draws on the magical poetry of Hafez, the philosophy of Alain Badiou, Hindu festivals, Biblical tales, and countless other ruminations on the word Love.   An immersive theatrical experience that will inspire you to believe, even for a moment, that Love is something active and alive in the world.
