SYNOPSIS: AMONG ROSES AND THE ASH is a meditation on the power, beauty, and limitations of the English language, seen through the eyes of an author. Inspired by the life and work of Virginia Woolf, AMONG ROSES AND THE ASH incorporates movement, sound and image to explore the work of a literary artist.
The Author contemplates two of her characters: a Woman planning a party, remembering past loves and questioning current ones, and a Man, haunted by his own past, attempting to create the world anew. As the Author travels through the lives and minds of her characters, she asks questions all writers must consider: what can one communicate through words? What gets lost and unexpectedly found? AMONG ROSES AND THE ASH is a lyrical exploration of our human desire to connect and all that may happen in the attempt.
WOW Cafe Theater is located at 59-61 East 4th Street on the Fourth Floor. between Bowery and 2nd Avenue in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City, USA.
