Scholar and Painter; Or How to Fall in Love With the Sky


Written and directed by Rachel Pospisil
April 1-3

"Scholar throws a tantrum and violently throws her book across the room. Painter cries out, Scholar freezes."

Scholar and Painter; or How to Fall in Love With the Sky is a story about discovering true love, finding middle ground, and repairing broken relationships with the people around us and with the planet we call home. With 90% of the play told through movement alone, and the remaining 10% mainly spoken in languages other than English, the play asks whether it’s possible to listen, to understand, and to evolve, and to save ourselves from ourselves.
