We all assume we see the world as it is, as everyone else sees it.
That’s not always the case.
When I was little, I thought everyone saw the number people. Numbers, specifically Zero through Ten, are vivid, living beings. Arithmetic was difficult; the numbers would sometimes resist being manipulated. When I realized others didn’t see the number people, I kept my mouth shut and didn’t tell anyone about them. For decades.
I eventually learned that I have a rare form of synesthesia. Synesthesia is the mixing of senses. Some people see music as colors. Others taste sound or perceive days of the week or letters as colors. I experience the number people.
Numesthesia introduces you to the numbers. You’ll get to know them, like them (well most of them. Most of them are pretty nice. Others…). And I’ll also let you know how I dealt with the discovery that my reality is not completely shared with everyone.
Last year’s One Mutual Happiness featured composer/performer Rich O’Meara live on stage. This year Rich will be joined by his incredibly talented son, Kevin. In addition to conventional instruments, Rich and Kevin will be performing on tuned bowls, pots and pans, rotary saws, and many other found instruments.
Join us for a theatrical event that promises to blow your mind. Or not.
We got your number. Count on it.
Numbers are numbers. People are people. Not always.
