GAP Presents! The Deconstructive Theatre Project


Wednesday, October 21 - Thursday, October 22, 2015
Performance: 8pm | Doors at 7:30pm

Inspired by the writings of “memory’s Einstein” W.G. Sebald and the developmental theories of neuroscientist Semir Zeki, Searching for Sebald is at once a live performance, a documentary film, a road movie, and a ghost story that meanders from the thinly populated countrysides of the English North Sea coast to the densely overlapping landscapes of the human mind. The production is the second in The Deconstructive Theatre Project's series of live cinema projects exploring relationships between live performance, neuroscience, and interactive technology.

The Deconstructive Theatre Project under the direction of Adam J. Thompson is an eight-year-old Brooklyn-based not-for-profit creative laboratory devising and premiering new multidisciplinary performance works and currently creating a series of projects at the intersection of live performance, neuroscience, and interactive technology. The company is a member of the HERE Artist Residency Program and The Public Theater’s Devised Theatre Working Group and most recently performed its acclaimed live cinema work The Orpheus Variations as a part of The Public's 2015 Under the Radar Festival. The press has identified The Deconstructive Theatre Project for “masterfully reinvent[ing] what live theater can mean for the individual, while illuminating the utter complexity and subjectivity of our own consciousness,” and has called the company’s work “so purposeful and…not only unique, but also innovatively reflective on the future of the performing arts.”
