What: The project was inspired by a challenge to live for 40 days and 40 nights making all choices based in love, and draws on the magical poetry of Hafez, the philosophy of Alain Badiou, Hindu festivals, Biblical tales, and countless other ruminations on the word “love.” This immersive theatrical experience inspires you to believe, even for a moment, that love is something active and alive in the world. Presented by Electric Theatre Company.
