Internationally award-winning, Golden Mask nominated* company that took Russia by storm, Journey Lab returns to New York City with an explorative four-day piece: Saudade (the presence of absence).
Saudade (the presence of absence), untranslatable from Portuguese, roughly means the melancholic nostalgia for something you’ve never had. A movement-based, ‘viewpoints’ inspired piece with interactivity, the work explores the impact of chance encounters and their effects, battling how isolating an unforgivingly connected city makes us feel as bear the accumulated weight of our own ambitions, routines, friends, triumphs, mistakes, worries, and inherited craziness. All the alternate realities come to life in this piece about connection and perspective. Entire stories you'll never know exist, in which you might appear only once.
In conjunction with "Urban Interconnections," I'm excited to be working again with Journey Lab on a site-specific piece Saudade. Inspired by the art surrounding it the theatrical production will explore the isolation and connection of our lives in New York City.
