SUMMARY

Introspection is a show written with original music that is based off of and inspired by "Proverb" by Steve Reich. The show is the conceptual idea of a cluster of thoughts, or your train of thought being lost and derailed, gradually consuming you to the brink of insanity. However, there is always a silver lining, as the hopeful ballad and turbulent ending depict the hard journey back to a clear mind through concentration and perseverance.

"How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life..."
