Using characters from Sartre’s “No Exit,” You Are Here investigates how we are defined to each other by our society. Which definitions do we choose and which are chosen for us? How do we know, for a fact, that we are here? Do we make money, make love, make art? Do we feel “less here” when no one is watching? Is performing proof of existence? Is pain proof of reality? Do psychology, religion, social definitions or political parties really help delineate our boundaries from one another? Using their personal histories to map themselves physically and emotionally in time and space, the performers use humor and terror to arrive at a destination that defies definition, but which marks a sense of connection to each other. The work explores movement, text and music with equal intensity and considers the possibility that each can be not only acts of communication, but ultimately, acts of both survival and subversion.
