The Geometry of Miracles

Geometry of Miracles is inspired by the life and times of American architectural giant Frank Lloyd Wright, and the show integrates many references to his work – particularly the Johnson Wax Building and the Guggenheim Museum. But the production also focuses on the groups of young architects that Wright gathered in Taliesin and Taliesin-West, on the underlying principles behind these gatherings, on the “guru” phenomenon, on relations between mentors and disciples, and on the development of individual personality within a collective training context.

The play is also concerned with the influence of Olgivanna, Wright’s second wife, on the architect’s work, and on the fondamental influence of Russian-born guru thinker Gurdjieff on Olgivanna Wright’s thinking. Overall, it is a poetic essay on individual identity and the creative process, filled with projections, sounds, words and choreographed bodies.
