TRACE…
a unique theatrical experience with two integrated parts - An audio tour through the streets of New York 1919 and a performance in a New York theater 2008. Trace is a playful meditation on how memories and fantasies are constructed and lost. We look at the neurological phenomena that allow us to construct a "coherent" vision of the world out of the millions of bits of fragmented sensory and conceptual information we experience daily. Audio Tour: Every fifteen minutes two people set out at the same time from two different sites in the city. They walk in the footsteps of two characters from 1919. Their paths cross and diverge only to merge again, ending at the same table in a restaurant. Sign up and walk the tour led solely by a voice on a CD player. Duration: approx. 1 hour Performance: NYC, April 2008, an experimental neuroimaging chamber that allows access to the mind of a New York City bicycle messenger who underwent brain surgery after an accident in Columbus Park. We follow two doctors as they descend into the bottomless black well of the messenger\s memory - a place where nothing is as it seems, where the recent dead intermingle with past loves and where sea monsters roam the brittle ground.
