Reflections of a Constant MonkREFLECTIONS OF A CONSTANT MONK

Blending Storytelling, Poetry and Original Music

Music composed and directed by Robin Mason on cello; Peter Galinsky on clarinet and James Bryce on keyboard complement the poetry written and presented by Lee Gershuny.

November 2017 Tour

  • Thurs., 16 Nov., 7:30 pm, Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh

With music and poetry from the heart, the performance brings to life thought-provoking adventures of a modern day Monk facing life’s challenges — being overweight, meeting a bully, falling in love, etc. With a playful innocence and endless curiosity, the Monk manages to find beauty in the darkest moments and questions the purpose of life itself. Insightful and sometimes laughable, the Monk expresses a wit and wisdom to amuse, surprise and move us.

Web ImageUpon the invitation of New York’s Theater for the New City’s annual Dream Up Festival, the Elements World Theatre will be presenting five performances of its new play, Messages From A Mental Institution in late August of this year.

First presented in March at Summerhall in Edinburgh, the play tells a simple story of what happens when strange messages from a Woman’s missing husband spark her heroic quest to find his true identity and rescue him from a mental institution. Presented in an absurd, surreal style, the play deals with complex issues around identity, spiritual awakening and the nature of “reality.”
