Performer/ Writer Amanda Erin Miller premieres her performance/ yoga class hybrid, transporting the audience to an Indian ashram, & launches her memoir on which the show is based.
One Breath, Then Another: An Interactive Solo Show chronicles Miller's month long experience studying yoga on an ashram in India. The show depicts her quest for healing and empowerment to avoid destroying herself like her father. Practices in her training conjure memories of her father's lung cancer and death, in addition to her own struggles with mental health. As she trains to become a yoga teacher, she reflects deeply on mortality and the workings of her mind, learning to let go and surrender to the present moment, inviting the audience to do the same. Amanda plays herself, her father, a friend, and the elderly ashram leader, Purnima. Interactive elements include breathing exercises, chanting, yoga poses, and meditation. Direction/ Sound Design by Colleen Toole.
