Night at the Theater for the New City - From April 24 to May 10, 2015

Multimedia Theater Play NIGHT with projection design, video art and animations by Spanish filmmaker and videoartist Laia Cabrera in collaboration with French projection designer and animator Isabelle Duverger. 

Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, "Night (Thyestes 2.0)" combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. This world premiere performance brings a bold mix of standout projection design and visuals, choreography, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.

Directed by Ildiko Nemeth in collaboration with:
Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger - Video and Projection Design
Federico Restrepo - Lighting
Egle Paulauskaite - Costume
Galway McCullough - Fight Choreography
Jon Gilbert Leavitt - Sound Engineering
