Einstein's Dreams

Spooky Action Theater
1810 16th St NW Washington

Young Einstein has just written a ground-breaking paper. Much of it suggested by dreams. A diverse ensemble of 15 actors explore this evocative text through sound and movement. They are the intertwining strands of Einsteinís life and the alternate visions of time that give birth to the Theory of Relativity.

Washington Post - Recommended

"...On the whole, though, Holderness has managed to link language, design and physicality in a way thatís interesting and resonant, and her cast is quite competent. Adam Segaller, in particular, lends the production a much-needed center of gravity, portraying a dapper Einstein who has very little interest in focusing on people, rather than physics. (You can almost see the equations toggling through this guyís head.) Burning Coal company member Jonathan Fitts brings welcome low-key bonhomie to the part of Besso, Einsteinís friend and co-worker at the patent office. (At one point, the productionís chairs get clustered together to form a boat in which the two colleagues go fishing.)"

What we see is the grace and elegance of Einstein's theories, as represented by the grace and elegance of the actors on stage, who slow down and speed up in concert with Einsteinís theories of time, and of Vicki Davisí clever and lovely set, which helps us understand what a slender, glassy reed reality is.
