Move: A Mountain Goat’s Monologue
In this genre-smashing blend of movement theatre, stand-up comedy, and breathtaking audiovisual art, actor/playwright/mountaineer Mike Largent takes us from the devastating lows of clinical depression to the dizzying highs of alpine running. Through spoken word and state-of-the-art drone footage, Move transports audiences to the peaks of a quartet of fourteeners: Mt. Belford, Mt. Oxford, Mt. Missouri and Mt. Harvard – a string of summits which Mike overtook in a single arduous, life-changing run. Move tells this story, culminating in an theatrical act of affirmation and communion that brings to life the same chase for endorphins that once tortured its creator.
