See it if You’d like to learn what an empath is and hear the story of someone who claims he is one from a very likable young man.
Don't see it if You need a nap. His quiet demeanor and speaking style, soft lighting and ambient music makes it hard to stay awake.
"Profound yet understated, 'Empath' highlights human emotion through personal experience...Sauvage’s unvarnished storytelling and droll, self-effacing tone help free 'Empath' from artifice and cliché...Sauvage acknowledges the story’s outlandishness and his own still-limited experience as a performer and energy reader...'Empath’s' final segment, in which Sauvage conducts live readings for audience volunteers, further quells disbelief through the bare display of his abilities."
“The show follows Sauvage’s path from self-proclaimed ‘typical Jewish cynic’...through the discovery of his gift for experiencing the emotions of others...Sauvage is charismatic and he definitely has a gift for writing, speaking, and healing...After the readings, Sauvage lead the group through a meditation to help clear any emotions that we had picked up...The direction by Catie Davis was well done as well as the lighting and sound design.”
