As live theatre begins to return after the challenges of the past year and half, we have been working away on a combination of video and live-theatre projects. Scroll down to see what we’re up to!
A Multi-Media Video Project
“That which is boundless in you abides in the mansion of the sky . . .” – The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran
Based on chapters from poet Kahlil Gibran’s beloved book, The Prophet, we will be working with visual artists, composers, and actor-narrators to create and release a series of ‘video-poems.‘ Released at intervals through out the year, each video is a unique, co-created exploration of Gibran’s beautiful words.

Lucy and the Thoughts:
A Video Play
Have you ever had a “thinking meditation”? You know, where you’re supposed to be blissed out and silent, but instead your thoughts are like, “Hello, welcome, let us discuss everything ever!” Well, Lucy certainly has. And she’s about ready to do battle with her (talkative, bubble-blowing) thoughts.
An original play-turned-video project, Lucy and the Thoughts is a funny, heart-felt, and sharp look at the inner battles of a meditator who is ready for the ‘next phase’.
Lee and the Tallest Tree
Lee the Squirrel is not cute. Or cuddly. Or adorable. She lives in a trash can and she’s totally fine with it. But one day, she gets whisked away to a new world of green trees, fresh air and forest creatures. And to be honest, it’s kinda freaking her out . . .
Presented with Brazilian folk music, story-telling, and puppetry, Lee and the Tallest Tree is a 30-minute, 2-performer play about transformation. Simple objects transform into characters. Musical instruments become their voices. Can Lee transform her tough-talk into real courage – and open her heart?
A Map in the Dark
“When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.” — Harriet Tubman
Using shadow puppetry, song, and story-telling, A Map in the Dark tells the story of Harriet Tubman, the American heroine who risked her life to rescue herself and hundreds of others from slavery. Through the eyes of Alice, a modern teenager; the eyes of the people she helped rescue; and Harriet herself, A Map in the Dark tells a story of friendship, grief, and extraordinary courage.
