Candledancing: The Voice of Julian of Norwich
When you ask God to be your dance partner... The music never stops CANDLEDANCING examines the synthesis of humanity's physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions by weaving together the words, thoughts, and feelings of its sincere yet disconcerted characters who seek to understand the meaning of their lives. Regardless of innocent intentions, all involved find themselves subject to reproof, and new light is shed on the mortal condition. A brilliant piece of drama in two acts, CANDLEDANCNG captures the essence of medieval theology within a modern scenario. An honest and easily adaptable piece for theatrical magic for university or community players, CANDLEDANCING is certainly an audience pleaser.
