RETURN TO ABSENCE

LT5A5147
Arcane Collective’s latest production, Return to Absence inhabits the rich and peculiar realm of Samuel Beckett’s trilogy novel Molloy, Malone Dies, and the Unnamable.  Presenting a non-linear storytelling, Return to Absence embodies the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to Beckett’s world, portraying the human condition often at the end of its tether.

“Dance first. Think Later. It’s the natural order”. – Samuel Beckett

A playful futility fuels Arcane Collective’s latest production ebb.
Flowing from a continuing exploration into the quagmire of Samuel Beckett’s trilogy novel Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable,  and his seminal work, Waiting for Godot, ebb weaves a tale of decrepit persistence that is nostalgic, melancholic, and touchingly humorous.

Inhabiting the rich and peculiar realm of Samuel Beckett’s trilogy novel Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable, Arcane Collective presents excerpts of its latest two-part production, Return to Absence and Ebb. Constructing a fluent language of movement as abstract and absurd as Beckett’s words, the dance weaves a non-linear tale of decrepit persistence and playful futility of life at the end of its tether. The dance weaves a tale of decrepit persistence that is nostalgic, melancholic, and touchingly humorous.

” I can’t go on, you must go on, I’ll go on.” – Samuel Beckett

Premieres at New York Live Arts in April 14-16 2016.
