This Is What It’s Like

Variable Cast Size // Full Length

“I want you to try and remember what it was like to have been very young. And particularly the days when you were first in love; when you were like a person sleepwalking, and you didn’t quite see the street you were in, and didn’t quite hear everything that was said to you. You’re just a little bit crazy. Will you remember that, please?”

Thornton Wilder, Our Town

This Is What It’s Like utilizes the gestural composing language of Soundpainting to combine acting, music, movement, and storytelling to create a spontaneous, ensemble-based improvised performance about who we are and who we wish to be.
