Student Takeover: Who’s Your Neighbor?

Wednesday, May 29 , 8:00 PM - 9:15 PM
Corona hall, Luna building
Price: Free (Student) Free (Others)

Are you ready to hear the story of your life? If so, who would be the one to tell it? Maybe it’s your neighbor, childhood friends, teachers, or yourself. Perhaps it would be your resume or your future employer. Or perhaps it should be the future version of yourself, just before you pass away…?

Join us for an immersive performance unlike any other, which invites you to reshape the way you think about your life. 

Words express thoughts, but thoughts are always deeper than the words that describe them. Think about it: thoughts are remnants of experiences, and experiences are made of sound, imagery, scent, flavor, touch, and temperature. Can words alone bear the weight of this myriad of sensations?

Who is Your Neighbor? will challenge you to look back on your life, from the very beginning. In the beginning, there were no words, just the world in its rawest form. There was no Self and no World until part of the whole became aware of its own existence; the Self separated from the World. You found yourself in a strange place, surrounded by similar creatures who seemed to be having a similar experience to yours. It seemed that you would live this experience forever, not once suspecting that one day you would become like those who brought you into the world. Then time passed, you made choices, attracted people to your life, and parted ways with others. Where are you now? Where are you going?

Don’t hesitate and allow yourself to go back to the beginning of time and immerse yourself in a show full of lights, sounds, dance, music, and other curious creatures like you. You will feel before you hear a word. You will tell your story, to yourself, and to your neighbor.
