Awele's Theatre Picks!

"Making theater is a service that contributes to the web of life. Theater-going is a way of exercising critical thinking, enjoying a conscious examined life, practicing empathy and engaging with ideas, passions and issues that can profoundly affect the way one sees oneself and the surrounding world. In a world with multiple realities and world-views living inside a range of different people, theater invites the brave, the curious and the adventurous to engage with the richness such diversity in humankind provides. It is through this kind of engagement that one’s soul can be expanded, one’s thinking can be elevated, one’s life can be cracked open and uplifted to experience new vistas."
