Free and open to the public however tickets are required.
The Department of Theatre welcomes Available Light Theatre presenting “Remain In Light,” an original play (with music) about an ordinary woman braving the difficult journey of learning to make a life worth living. A theatrical look at the tenets and tools of the Positive Psychology movement, “Remain In Light” was created by visiting artists Available Light Theatre, and will be presented as part of their residency with Denison.
“Remain in Light” is a collage of movement, moments, songs, and visions; a practical handbook for being a better whatever you already are; a play written for anyone seeking more joy and well being.
“This kaleidoscopic, physical collage tackles some of the biggest questions facing us today… It’s a reminder to be here in the moment and here for one another. Who among us couldn’t use that?” (Richard Sanford, Columbus Underground)

She earned her CAPP at The Flourishing Center and is a certified Resiliency Trainer.
“Positive Psychology has been a big part of my life for the past couple of years, and I’ve come to understand that, as human beings and artists, we need to give ourselves permission to feel a full range of emotions. That leads us to have more success at bouncing back from adversity and feeling happiness throughout our lives.” (Michelle Schroeder-Lowrey, CAPP)
