Description

This provocative, comic and life-affirming one-man show invites you to the core of spiritual debate to experience a journey of life, death and transcendence. Urgent questions like: 'where do we go when we die?', 'are we individuals or all connected?' and 'what is spiritual enlightenment?’ are joyfully explored with impassioned arguments, epic storytelling and physical theatre in a whistle-stop tour of eastern philosophy, shamanism, quantum mechanics, sleep science, meditation and more. It brings these breath-taking subjects to life and dismantles our ingrained common-sense assumptions to reveal tantalising alternatives.

You will leave this show with a mind full of the deepest thoughts, having seen a passionate, intelligent, skilful and hugely likeable performer. Intellectually deft and punctuated with inspired, accessible, wonderful language. This is an unforgettable and brilliant piece of theatrically well-realised art.
