He Walks Through Lightning: The Life of St. Norbert
written by Jenny Magnus
produced by the Still Point Theatre Collective
performed and co-produced by Nate Smith
He Walks Through Lightning is a one-man show on the life of a 12th century saint. Born a nobleman, Norbert sold everything he owned and devoted himself to poverty, working directly among the people and the poor. A legendary peacemaker, he settled a conflict between the Pope and Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV which prevented the Vatican from being sacked, and garnered such a following that he founded his own order.
This will be a remount of the show which ran once in September of 2021 at the Norbertine order of Wisconsin. Set, costumes, props, and a skeleton of blocking remain.
A director to work with actor and producer Nate Smith to restage the production, adjust script as needed, and most importantly to dynamically tell the story of Norbert through the hour of biographical text. *Religious background not at all required.*
Rehearse February 2024 in NYC, flexible schedule. Estimated 16 hours/week for 4 weeks.
Performs once at St. Norbert College in Wisconsin March 5 [Director not required at performance] and recorded in a separate session.
