The Sun Experiment

"Top 10 Music & Nightlife Events" -Time Out New York

Awarded for Excellence -FringeNYC

This reimagining of Twelfth Night entangles three illicit love triangles across time and space. Their whirlwind pursuit of Eros leads philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein to uncover the physics of longing and test the boundaries of logic. Layer in gender-bending and startling reversals for a spinning, provocative exploration of desire.
