"Lighthouse" presents the drama of a person, isolated from a sea of others yet longing for authentic connection. The lighthouse, its keeper, and the surrounding slip of jagged land where shipwrecked survivors find refuge become a metaphor for enlightenment in this moving, multi-arts performance.

"Lighthouse" artfully evokes the sense that the audience as witnesses, are actually participants, struggling with the fierce wave patterns and violent storms of the sea juxtaposed with the tranquility of solitude and the downside of loneliness of the keeper. Just as life is ever changing, so too is the sea. For centuries, the lighthouse has been a beacon for those at sea. For those on land, what is our light? NYC based composer/performer Robert Een, poet/novelist and human rights activist Marjorie Agosín, set designer Marcela Otéiza, and lighting designer Blu join the Ensemble as the collaborative team for this exciting new work.
