Privatopia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directed By Handan Ozbilgin
Written by acclaimed Greek playwright M. Efstathiadi.

 

 

  Privatopia sheds light on the increasing fear of "otherness" rampant in modern societies. In the tradition of absurdism, Efstathiadi paints a brutal portrait of a gated community in a desperate effort to hold on to their privileges against the "outsiders".

God Lives in Glass

 

 

 

 

 

October 15-17
Based on Dr. Landy’s book, “How We See God, and Why it Matters” and inspired by drawings and stories about “God” from children, young spiritual thinkers from every culture, religion, race and nationality all over the planet, God Lives in Glass shows us a reflection of ourselves as it holds up the “glass” as mirror and considers the ancient contemplative meditation, “Who am I?” while also providing a window through which we can view the world with wonder humor and imagination, as seen “through the eyes of a child.”
