luciana achugar: An Epilogue for OTRO TEATRO:True Love
December 10-12 & 17-19 @ 7 PM : 280 Broadway @ Gibney Dance (Co-Presented with the Chocolate Factory)
An intervention for a theater in ruins, An Epilogue for OTRO TEATRO: True Love furthers luciana achugar’s search for another kind of theater: one that connects us to our central desire to move and sets free a new “post-civilized” self that resists Western assumptions of beauty and order. A long-form performance where the audience is free to come and go, and divisions between audience and performer are removed, An Epilogue… is performance as ritual, an occasion for communion that moves performer and audience from apathy to empathy.
An Epilogue for OTRO TEATRO: True Love was developed through residencies at MANCC and Mount Tremper Arts and premiered at Gibney Dance in December 2015 in a co-production with The Chocolate Factory. It features design by luciana’s long-time collaborators, visual artist Michael Mahalchick and DJ Peter Jacobs, and performance by luciana, Michael, Peter, Oren Barnoy, Nikima Jagudajev, Jennifer Kjos, Molly Lieber, Gillian Walsh, and Rebecca Wende.
