Occupy Me mixes a yoga class and self-discovery in a very sweet show – wear some comfy pants because you might end up doing some yoga!
Should you see it?
Occupy Me is about Sarah Lotus Blossom, a yoga teacher who isn’t sure that she’s on the right path. She’s played by the charming, fun and energetic Bronwyn Steinberg. This show meshes a yoga class where Sarah is being evaluated as a teacher with a discussion at her own attempts at self-discovery. Sarah talks about her struggle between reaching inner peace and the modern world, and her disappointing experience in an ashram in India where she expected to find her spiritual guru.
Be prepared to participate. In Occupy Me, you can be an evaluator or one of Sarah’s students. However, beware: there are a limited number of evaluators every show. After all, Sarah needs students to have a class. Don’t worry if you’re picked, though. The yoga practice is just enough to work up a little sweat and sticks to the basics.
Steinberg, on the other hand, will impress you with her complicated moves. Occupy Me has a sweet message and is great if you need a little boost of yogic energy during a hard day’s Fringing.
But that’s just my opinion and I’d love to know what you think. Tell me in the comments below!
