Prologue is a mixed-media performance created as a composition of moments – snapshots into the life and thought of French philosopher, activist, and mystic, Simone Weil (1909 – 1943). As an actor prepares to play Simone Weil, he reflects on the mystical and artistic processes, and on the indispensable role of “the other” to bring depth and meaning to our experience.
