Second time NYIT Award Nominee! In 2014 for Cosmicomics Outstanding Innovative Design!

NYIT Award Nominee 2014 for Garden of Delights Outstanding Innovative Design

Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger are New York Innovative Theater Award Nominees
for Outstanding Innovative Design (Projection Design, Video-Art and Animations)
for The New Stage Theatre Company's production of
Cosmicomics
at the New York Innovative Theater Awards 2014.


Cosmicomics at Dixon Place - from March 28 to April 19, 2014


Multimedia Theater Play COSMICOMICS with projection design, video art and animations by Spanish filmmaker and videoartist Laia Cabrera in collaboration with French artist Isabelle Duverger. 
Dixon Place and The New Stage Theatre Company present world premiere of Cosmicomics, an original multimedia theatre piece inspired by chapters of Italo Calvino's matchless novel of the same name.
Directed by Ildiko Nemeth, Cosmicomics comprises a series of vignettes involving our narrator, Qfwfq, as he evolves across the history of the universe. From his innocent childhood before the Big Bang, when everything he loved was packed into a single point, we continue on to his love affairs and nostalgic middle age. Along the way we witness wondrous things: the birth of light and color, the identity crises of creatures that move from sea to land, the inner lives of mollusks, and more. Against a cosmic backdrop we recognize fundamentally human experiences in the tales: obsession, neurosis, love and transformation.

Article in El Diario: "Projecting Dream All Around The World"

Proyectando fantasías alrededor del mundo
by Silvina Sterin Pensel/Especial para EDLP, originally published in El Diario - Jun, 1, 2014


Illustration by Isabelle Duverger

"Por un momento, se está en el mar abierto en compañía de medusas, peces y otras criaturas. Luego, caminando en la polvorienta superficie lunar, llena de cráteres y fisuras. Después, el entorno se vuelve cavernoso, predomina el rojo y lumínicas llamaradas devoran el lugar. Pero no es el océano, ni la luna ni el infierno: Es el Lower East Side, más precisamente Dixon Place, un pequeño teatro sobre la calle Chrystie que Laia Cabrera transformó en un lugar mágico durante la puesta de Cosmicomics, una pieza basada en la novela de Italo Calvino.

"Intervinimos el suelo y el fondo", comenta esta española recordando cómo obró semejante mutación valiéndose de animaciones, cámaras que proyectaban en vivo los movimientos de los actores sobre las paredes y paneles móviles.

El primer paso, explica, es siempre evaluar el espacio donde se desarrollará el espectáculo. Laia lo recorre de punta a punta: ¿Cuántas filas de asientos hay? ¿Cuántas plantas tiene el lugar? ¿Cuántas ventanas? Revisa los planos y le abre la puerta a su imaginación. "Es clave que mi fantasía sea viable técnicamente; es mi mayor desafío".

Largas sesiones

Luego de largas sesiones de brainstorming junto a su socia y roommate, la francesa Isabelle Duverger, Laia se anima a todo. "Creo sin un corset. Utilizo elementos del cine porque es mi formación pero me salgo de lo tradicional". Con su video instalación Shifting Gaze convirtió Times Square en una gigante plataforma multimediática donde los neoyorquinos reflexionaron en 360 grados sobre las elecciones, el deseo y la memoria, tres temas que la obsesionan. Muy pronto rumbeará a Italia donde proyectarán imágenes y animaciones sobre el Tempietto di Bramante, un imponente monumento renacentista en el corazón de Roma. "llevamos las maletas cargadas de proyectores y el montaje nos llevará dos semanas".

Laia llegó a NY en 1997 buscando un terreno más fértil que Barcelona para sus experimentos visuales. "En aquella época, allá, me miraban como bicho raro. Aquí todo era interdisciplinario; los artistas colaboraban unos con otros y se respiraba libertad y aventura".

La Gran Manzana, ciudades en Europa y Latinoamérica se convierten así en sus salas y Laia proyecta sus videos –la mayoría filmados por ella misma- en fachadas de edificios de todo tipo, altura y material. "Mucha gente ve vidrio y huye. Para mí, es todo lo contrario, no paro hasta encontrar cómo plasmar lo que imagino".

Cosmicomics Reviews: Summary on our Projection Design, Videoart & Animation

Photo of the Week, TimeOut New York nº949, April 10-16, 2014 (Photo by Lee Wexler/ImagesforInnovation.org)

2014 NYIT Award Nomination for Outstanding Innovative Design (Projection Design, Videoart and Animations)

"The sight of the modern stage techniques using projected images, videos, colors, lights and shadows helps the viewers to understand the texts from the mouth of the actors."
"The very powerful scenes were those in which the actors were acting out the story live on stage while in the background projections appeared at the same time."
"An interesting, very spectacular show"
- Barát Tamás WBPI / New York, Breuerpress International, April 8, 2014

"There are many gorgeous projections that fill up this space. [...] Federico Restrepo’s lighting is an enormous part of the show, as are the lunar landscapes and other projections designed by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger." - Ed Malin, nytheater now, March 30, 2014

"I’ve seen a few of New Stage Theatre’s previous shows and have always been struck by the absolutely stunning visual elements" Katy Einerson, Culture Bot, March 31, 2014

"I let my mind float away on a drunken cloud and into the absurd non sequitur universe of Italo Calvino. I found myself delighted. [...] The music is playful and lovely like the shifting backdrops of the universe in freefall, a solitary studio, or a beach party." Aurin Squire, New York Theatre Review, April 8, 2014

"Just saw COSMICOMICS, where Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger have totally outdone themselves. Amazing! You.got.to.see.it!!!" - Laura Turegano, Associate Director, King Juan Carlos Center At NYU, April 4, 2014

"Visually extravagant beyond belief with a great cast, great costumes, and great fun! [...] GO see it!!" Jackie Rudin, Community Organizer, NYC, April 6, 2014
