In May of 2017 Temple presented Come Shining, a performance installation inspired by the stories created with a group of older adults at Springwell Senior Living Community. Come Shining explores the transformative process of the aging mind and spirit, celebrates the endurance of the imagination and the art of being together. It premiered at Single Carrot Theater in Baltimore.
