LIGHT THROUGH MY HANDS
DIXON PLACE, 161A CHRYSTIE ST
AUGUST 26TH 7:30PM
Love bubbles up. Love finds a way. Michael and Clara are in love. Michael and Clara like to play games. No one knows Clara besides Michael and maybe no one else ever will because Clara might not exist. A grappling exploration of the power of imagination and desire, Light Through My Hands, examines how we build relationships, bare ourselves, and asks whether or not love can really triumph all. If she's real to Michael, who says she isn't real?
