the prism of art
Sarabande’s goal is to recreate the full panoply of human experience, refracted through the prism of art. Our humanity is multilayered, infinite, inexhaustible. Both transcendent and depraved, it is simultaneously the most exquisite thing in the universe and the most depraved. But through art we embrace it fully, joyously, and often with a shock of recognition. Art alone can deliver us to the harrowing depths of our humanity, where mermaids sport and hagfish lurk. Immersed in art, we are always out of our depth. We drown. We are resurrected. Remade by art, we regard ourselves, and others, with a steady, compassionate eye.
Is this too lofty a goal for virtual theater? I don’t know. Perhaps. But it will be a long time before I concede the point. Meanwhile, with each new production Sarabande will strive toward this goal, and we invite you to join us.
