PROCESS

Art + Science + Philosophy   

    

From the tiny sparks of imagination to the full scale productions, our process is centered on a foundation of meticulous artistic practice that includes deep research into scientific subjects and strong roots in fundamental philosophies.

Developement Workshop: August 2015    

Symphony of the Fourth Dimension began as a movement workshop with text (excerpt below), and was subsequently developed into a full-length play. Learn more about our productions below.

PRODUCTIONS

SYMPHONY OF THE FOURTH DIMENSION

From the streets of New York City, to the mystical world of lucid dreams, from the site of a supernova billions of light-years away, to the silent death of an ancient civilization, audiences of Symphony of the Fourth Dimension are led by a precocious middle schooler on a quest through the universe to find an answer to the age-old question: What is Time?

Following the summer 2014 development workshops, writer and director Simone Tetrault was awarded the Sci-Art Center of New York's 2015 Biomeditation development grant for the use of motion-sensor technology integration in Symphony of the Fourth Dimension.

On October 1, 2015 Symphony of the Fourth Dimension premiered at Access Theater's Gallery Space with a cast of 9. The play was well received and enjoyed a sold-out run!

Symphony of the Fourth Dimension went on to be performed as part of FIGMENT North Adams festival in April 2016 and FIGMENT Project NYC on Governor's Island in June 2016.

These performances have been made possible by in part by CAC's private donors as well as generous space grants from 92Y Harkness Dance Center, Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute, and NYU Tisch School of the Arts. 

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

An old woman suffers from dementia. A young stroke victim struggles to make language. A transgender woman claims her new identity. All three find themselves in a strange new world. 'Alice' appears in many forms, but when she/they encounter her/their new reflections in the world of Through the Looking Glass, each Alice must choose how to reconcile her/their life-changing experiences with a sense of identity and what that means for their future.
