A musical allegory describing an inner journey from darkness to light, from being split to becoming whole.

10. High up and Mighty

/
Fate continues to challenge Viviana's naive assumption that the Divine has a hand in every event that befalls human beings. It is a dilemma that religions through the ages have struggled with; is it His Will, is it Karma, or does shit just happen? Fate suggests that whatever the answer, Viviana has personal will in choosing her attitude to what has happened to her.

11. Oldest Question

/
Viviana's inner Spirit tackles her question is a slightly more gentle fashion. Telling her that in the end, the answer to the question why me, is why not?

12. Hogwash and gibberish

/
That answer may have pleased Viviana, but now her Shadow part breaks into the open, enraged at the facile new agey answers that the Spirit gives. Viviana is now fully confronted with an aspect of herself that she has denied. Viviana, the 'good girl', though more than a little whiney, meets Shadow, 'pure unadulterated rage', and then... Shadow's grief of being abandoned.

13. Is it my fault?

/
After the full frontal attack from Viviana's Shadow there is a moment of reflection and sadness for the Spirit. Can God, can our parents, our guardian angels or even our souls stop bad things from happening. Stop us from hurting ourselves, hurting other parts of ourselves? If the could, should they even try? Or is it enough that they give us comfort when we fall?

14. Viviana's lullaby

/
Everyone needs comfort. All parts are hurting. The Shadow, Spirit, Viviana..... in the 2008 production the audience 'comforted' the cast back to strength. However, here we treat you to a more recent recording.

15. Stand off

/
Comforted by the lullaby and now both aware that the other needs to be acknowledged, Viviana and her Shadow gradually move from Standoff (the shit there is between us), to a will to reconciliation (the gold that's in us). In this process they mirror a process that needs to happen within each of us, between us and others, between cultures, religions, and between nations.

16. Miracles may happen

/
The will to heal the split may be there, but neither Viviana nor her Shadow understand the truly profound and universal meaning of their healing. One person at a time, one relationship at a time, one nation, one culture, one religion with the other... if we see we are just two halves of the same circle... miracles may indeed happen.

17. Dawn

/
Fully brought home through the work of the inner Spirit, the Shadow sings of the new Dawn in her life as her bright colours and promise shine through and a new dawn, indeed, rises. Viviana now sees her in a totally new light.

18. Surrender

/
Viviana now recognizes the Shadow as another aspect of herself, and not only that, she is no longer fearful of the qualities that this self part carries. From now on they will move forward as one.
