A wonderful performance / one actor play at the Shelterhouse Theater at the Playhouse in the Park last week – thanks to the Rosenthals, who are behind much of the art and culture in Cincinnati these days – both through their openness to the edge, and their financial support.
Since the short run is finished, I’ll tell you that the primary character, Low, is a dramatic portrayal of Rha Goddess’ sister, and her slide into the mental health system, where she basically disintegrates. Ms. Goddess – I love writing that! – has chosen the name Rha Goddess as part of her own struggle to be real, to be free.
Her skills are formidable, her sense of the stage is awesome. With a single chair and great lighting choices, Rha Goddess uses all the stage and that chair to support the story.
Low is the first part of Meditations Trilogy. It will be interesting to see the other pieces. Another current project she’s working on is The Next Wave of Women & Power / We Got Issues! – an arts and civic engagement project that focuses on young women’s empowerment.
Rha Goddess clearly wants to change the world with her gifts – and she’s certainly well on her way! When she and her work return to Cincinnati, I’ll definitely let you know.
