Lucy and the Thoughts

Have you ever had a “thinking meditation”? You know, where you’re supposed to be blissed out and silent, but instead your thoughts are like, “Hello, welcome, let us discuss everything ever!”.  Well, Lucy (our protagonist) certainly has. And she’s ready to do battle with her (talkative, bubble-blowing) thoughts.

An original play initially created through improvisation with students at the Nirmal Arts Academy, and then devised developed and adapted into a video-play by the performers. Lucy and the Thoughts is a funny, heart-felt, and sharp look at the inner battles of a meditator who is ready for the ‘next phase’.

As TEV's first original video-play production, Lucy and the Thoughts premiered as a streamable video in November 2021, followed by a series of live talk-back with the artists after each showing. By popular demand, the streaming window was extended for a month following the premiere!

TEV is now exploring options to submit this play to festivals, and will soon have a video platform where you can rent and view it online.
