Dr. Deep is the founder of Ultimate Liberation Philosophy, a metaphysical study focusing on the relationship of the individual to their existence. This new lecture on happiness is the second in a series that examines the intersection of science, spirituality and nonsense.
Dr. Deep’s lecture can be presented in any large room. In addition to being performed at Dreamland Arts, the show has also been performed in the barn at DreamAcres Farm in Wykoff, MN.
Dr. Deep’s first lecture (2015), titled “Shake Your Noggin Like a Bobblehead,” premiered at Dreamland Arts and was presented during Illusion Theater’s Fresh Ink series and at the Minnesota Fringe Festival (Star Tribune’s 10 Best Shows of the Fringe). Additional performances were help at Mixed Blood Theater, 2001 A Space, DreamAcres Farm and IHT Yoga.
