Searching for the Moon: A Story of Love, Despair, Faith and Forgiveness is a personal memoir written and performed by Amber Chand, that has resonated deeply with audiences, both in the United States and internationally, and been described as “spell binding, riveting and powerful”.
It is a global story of an Indian woman born in Uganda who takes us on evocative journey into a world of Indian arranged marriages, British boarding schools, African military coups and becoming a refugee, encounters with Indian holy men and Rwandan genocide survivors, and the meteoric rise and fall of her multi-million dollar business.
Through her powerful stage presence, theatricality, and skillful ability to weave in the sensuous and brutal, the comedic and the tragic, Amber offers her audiences an extraordinary experience of raw, courageous vulnerability in the face of life’s triumphs and defeats and penetrates into the heart of each story – tapping into the universal themes of love, despair, faith and forgiveness.
“Her performance is captivating and powerful as her life story itself. At times funny, at others stark and brutal, her story is told expertly in an intimate and inclusive style as ancient and effective as the griot in Africa and the Homeric storytellers of Greece. As Vyasa says at the beginning of the Indian epic, the Mahabharata” If you listen carefully, at the end you will be someone else.” -David Young, Octagon Theatre, UK.
The show is 90 minutes long, without intermission.
