The one really beautiful thing for me about A Maze, though, is the idea that all these characters are lost and we are going to watch them find themselves, especially the artists. At its core A Maze examines the artistic process as it relates to being in a maze. Finding your way to your art, your message. If you have ever tried to paint a picture, write a song, play a role, write a story, take a photograph (at any level) A Maze will grab you and pull at those creative strings, the good ones and the bad ones. Why we do it, what compels us, how it helps us, how it hurts, the excuses we make for great art, and the agony of the art that just falls short.
I’ve always been better asking the questions rather than answering them, and I think A Maze is just that kind of show. There’s a little bit of everything, for everyone…we’ll maybe not little kids, it’s not exactly a family show – but it is a show for thinkers, dreamers, and rock stars. A place to go and get a bit more lost than you expect, but you never know what you might find, and who you might meet getting back home again
A Maze plays from August 19th through September 9th at Atlas Performing Arts Center – 1333 H Street NE, in Washington, DC. For tickets, purchase them online. Directions are here.
