Three (2013)
Set in the era of the cabaret, Three is a zany and reflective story of
life’s relationships. An exploration of connections beyond the three
dimensions we perceive. Connections that may seem personal and private, ripple into a universe of continuing experience. Time is divided into three portions – the past, the present and the future. Three represents truth. It is symbolic like triad or trinity. Three is the unity of mind, body and spirit.
