The Vanishing Play explores losses large and small, controlled and uncontrollable: vanishing borders, both geographic and those within the mind, objects that vanish on their own and the willful tricks of the magician. Memory becomes an illusive tool and rituals are performed in order to reconstitute identity, history and relationships. How do we rend the veil of time, distance and dimension? Do we hang on to the past or transform our worldview to fit the people and places of the here and now?
The Vanishing Play premiered at the Incubator Arts Project at St. Mark’s Church in New York in February, 2012.
