About the mary shelley project JOURNEY Sept, 22nd , 2015

THEATERLAB in NYC  will present Muriel Louveau's Journey as part of  the International Artist Exchange Serie“Mi Casa Es Su Casa

Journey combines two theatrical pieces- US Premiere Mary Shelley Project and Skana-that share similar themes of straddling the space between light and darkness, wakefulness and sleep  -

Skana, presented in a newly staged version, with dancer Emily Pope Blackman , will be paired with Mary Shelley Project :This new piece ,created in collaboration with artist Autumn Kioti Moonface   is inspired by Mary Shelley's story and the apocalyptic " 1816 year without summer" following the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Tambora, in Indonesia. 

During this time, Shelley wrote: “Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world.”

"As a composer and performer, I felt inspired by  Shelley's figure and by this apocalyptic environment which appears as the dramatic background echoing simultaneously to her 's own tragical life haunted by deaths and losses .I sense  her visions don't belong to the past. The underlying  issues of the novel  including  the search of Immortality and the philosophical and ecological context that shapes the story  fundamentally speak about each of"us'
