We Sail On In Darkness

A new physical theater performance introducing the stories of four courageous female mystics.

Climbing in and out of visions, "We Sail On In Darkness" moves through place and time to tell the stories of renowned mystics Hildegard of Bingen, Julian of Norwich, Angela of Foligno, and Perpetua. Connected by their shared accounts of suffering, courage, and persistent joy, this modern adaptation of their original writings invites the audience to experience a reawakened sense of hope and community through a world of color, movement, and intimacy.


Full price: $25
Students/teachers/military/first responders/under the age of 25: $15
