Official Selection & Encore Performance
Son of Semele Solo Creation Festival 2018
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION /
"The validity and actual existence of this document is questionable. But that does not, in my opinion, lessen it's weight or value." - CHERYL FIDELMAN
With her 2nd solo show, Cheryl Fidelman enters into an inquiry about Free Will because she's been wondering whether or not we have any. What would it be like if our psyches were stripped of all sociological & familial influences? Would we then be living from a place of pure Free Will? Is that what it would mean to have Free Will? And is such a state of being even possible or desirable? Fidelman performs this comical, exploratory and pseudo-intellectual inquiry with a TED Talk-like presentation. The narrative of the piece hopes to bring to light that the access to true freedom may be through deepening our compassion and understanding of our own psychological and emotional programming and that of those around us.
