With music and poetry from the heart, the performance brings to life the adventures of a modern day Monk facing various familiar disturbances in the stream of life: being overweight, feeling lost, meeting a bully and not knowing what to do. Each disturbance allows the Monk to discover a surprising insight that is both simple and complete in that moment.
Ultimately, the Monk’s religion, gender, culture and background don’t matter at all, in being Everyman and Everywoman – bewildered and bedazzled by the same things as the rest of us.
With an endless curiosity and freedom to see beauty in the darkest moment, the Monk manages to express a wit and wisdom that often amuse, surprise and move us.
