Empath is a one-man show about emotional superpowers.
In EMPATH, writer/performer David Sauvage chronicles his own spiritual coming-out as the titular empath – a person hypersensitive to the emotions of others to the point of experiencing them as his own. Part story of personal discovery and healing, part performance art piece featuring live readings with audience members, the show follows the past decade of its creator’s life. Tracing his transformation from skeptical empiricist into purposeful performer-healer, Sauvage’s work is about bringing people back to the truth of who they really are.
“Best Bet! Profound yet understated, Empath highlights human emotion through personal experience.” – Theatre Is Easy
“Fabulous!” – Times Square Chronicles
“Captivating, moving, and undoubtedly his second sight is real and felt” – Isa Freling
