When a young gay man is found dead in his New York apartment, his best friends are left wondering why. Part meditation and part celebration, LOOK UPON OUR LOWLINESS is a touching, unexpectedly funny story of seven men who, in the wake of a tragic loss, choose to embrace life.

 For two years, playwright Harrison David Rivers and director/conceiver David Mendizábal developed LOOK UPON OUR LOWLINESS with The Movement Theatre Company. The piece began in 2012 as part of TMTC's Ladder Series and has continued its development with multiple readings and workshops. 

In April 2013, a workshop production at The Harlem School of the Arts Theater was produced by The Movement Theatre Company, in association with Radical Evolution. We are proud to have served as associate producers on this project and to support the development of this groundbreaking piece.
