Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins’s poetry, everything is fine unfolds in eight interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 16 artists, it delves deep into our memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.

“This new theater piece”, says Varone, “explores a darker and more disturbing range of emotions than has generally characterized my work; it is about the relationships we’ve all survived and their impact on our lives.”

Envisioned as a series of cinematic dialogues, it is performed to a newly commissioned score by renowned composer David Van Tieghem. Lighting Design by Ben Stanton. Costume Design by Liz Prince. Nancy Bannon, Dramaturg.

Includes sexually sensitive material, which may not be suitable for young children.


Daniel Charon, Ryan Corriston, Natalie Desch, Adriane Fang, Larry Hahn, Eddie Taketa, Nina Watt, and Rui Forsberg.

"There’s and emotional breadth sometimes missing from so many other greats in modern dance. Varone puts the beating heart at the center of the work."  Washington Post
