Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins’s poetry, everything is fine unfolds in seven 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 movement play”, 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.
