Creating “From the Realm of the Shadow”
Direct from NYC, join us for a special behind-the-scene experience of Chris Mohr’s sublime music drama From the Realm of the Shadow!
Forty years ago Mohr had a life changing event which lead to the inception of Shadow. Following an incredible journey of personal healing and musical composition, Mohr joined creative forces with theatre artists Christa Ray and Jeremy Williams to create the first ever staging of this epic story through dance and physical acting. The team of Mohr, Ray, and Williams will be together in Denver and Boulder to share the creative path that lead to the first staging of this “powerful” and “transformative” performance that was met with great enthusiasm and support by New York audiences.
