Another Chance to Join Amber Chand for “The Heroine’s Journey” on December 20 [Berkshire on Stage]

Amber Chand

By Larry Murray

Earlier this year, on January first, creative entrepreneur, peace activist and Great Barrington resident Amber Chand made a new year’s resolution to do something that would terrify her. Within a few hours of making this inner declaration, she got a call from a friend inviting her to speak about her life and work.

“I found myself emphatically saying: ‘No, I don’t want to give another speech or another workshop, what I really want is to do a one-woman show,’” Chand recalls replying. “Why? Perhaps it was the sheer disruptive exhilaration of doing something that would stretch me beyond the edges of my comfort zone. Perhaps it was the primal need to test myself, to see how far I could go in moving beyond my self imposed ‘limitations’ in this laboratory called life.”

Terrified or not, that show, The Heroine’s Journey: Tales of Love, Despair, Faith and Forgiveness had its premier in July at the Sandisfield Arts Center, and is being presented this holiday season at the Whitney Center for the Arts in Pittsfield, with lighting and sound design by Rob Dumais. The first performance on December 13, a fund-raiser for WAM Theatre, played to an enthusiastic sold-out house who gave Chand a standing ovation. The December 14 snowstorm has postponed the second performance to Friday, December 20 at 7pm.
