Once in the Darkness


Based on Plato’s Cave, this show explores a world void of reason. Prisoners of this barbaric place are enchained to the cave wall. They only process reality as the shadows created by the cave’s fire. One cave dweller finds an exit from the cave and beholds the glowing, beautiful Earth in which we live. The person blindly resorts back to the world of darkness, comforted by the order of the cave.
