“Empath” – David Sauvage
November 29 - December 9
After a sold-out run this April, Theaterlab is delighted to bring back Empath, a one-man show about emotional superpowers by David Sauvage. The show follows its creator’s winding path from self-proclaimed “typical Jewish cynic” through the discovery of his gift for experiencing the emotions of others, to genre-defying performance-artist-intuitive. The show will be presented at Theaterlab (357 West 36th Street, 3rd floor,) from November 29 to December 9.
In Empath, writer/performer David Sauvage chronicles his own spiritual coming-out as the titular empath – a person hypersensitive to the emotions of others to the point of experiencing them as his own. Part story of personal discovery and healing, part performance art piece featuring live readings with audience members, the show follows the past decade of its creator’s life. Tracing his transformation from skeptical empiricist into purposeful performer-healer, Sauvage’s work is about bringing people back to the truth of who they really are.
