Student Janine Sternlieb Co-Directs 'Body Awareness' Play in Sebastopol

SONOMA WEST TIMES AND NEWS -- “There’s a metaphor that’s set out quite early in the play,” Sternlieb said, quoting from the script: ‘“Deepak Chopra uses a really great example of flies stuck in a jar. If you keep the lid on for long enough, when you finally take it off, only a few flies are actually brave enough to leave the confines of the jar. The rest just keep flying around inside.’ So that really sets up a question for everyone: Am I going to live within these preconceived notions ideas and labels for the rest of my life or am I going to step out and look at life differently and live my life differently?”

Sternlieb is taking flight herself this week, starting a master’s in theatre at San Francisco State. It’s the culmination of several years of growing interest and work in theatre.
