What is enough? How do we know it, when it is present? What does it look like? If we look back on life, can we see where we weren’t aware of it? Is it more clear after we pass away? How does “enough-ness” show up in our lives? What does it look like when it shows up in people? If we saw it, could we name that we saw it? What if we don’t know? What if we don’t know that we don’t know? Perhaps this show might help clarify these curiosities?
Now in its 21st season, the Risky Nights Series is an opportunity to bridge classroom work and mainstage productions. Students in their fourth term of training create and perform every aspect of an original theatre piece with a professional director.

Amaa sa as n’isim, good day to you all, I hope you have been well. Welcome to this show.
What is “enough”? What is “craving”? How can we know when these phenomena are present in our lives? The extraordinary artists you are about to see have spent the last month bravely diving into these questions; how do we express this? This is less conventional than a traditional “Theatre Play”, and more in the domain of “An Expression”. We chose to call this a Fantasia because it is inherently a blend of styles, a jumbled mixture, variations on a theme. The challenge is that these things, enough and craving, are so massive that they appear in countless ways, different to each person’s life, and experiences. The artists you are about to see, embodying the spirits of people now passed on, are each here to bring and share perspective; by making space for different viewpoints on something so massive, the hope is that we define these enormous things as multifaceted; a many sided thing; a blend of components; a jumbled mixture. A Fantasia.
