Second time NYIT Award Nominee! In 2014 for Cosmicomics Outstanding Innovative Design!

NYIT Award Nominee 2014 for Garden of Delights Outstanding Innovative Design

Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger are New York Innovative Theater Award Nominees for Outstanding Innovative Design (Projection Design, Video-Art and Animations) for The New Stage Theatre Company's production of Cosmicomics at the New York Innovative Theater Awards 2014.

Cosmicomics at Dixon Place - from March 28 to April 19, 2014

Watch video: Cosmicomics theater play - Visuals and Video Installation

Multimedia Theater Play COSMICOMICS with projection design, video art and animations by Spanish filmmaker and videoartist Laia Cabrera in collaboration with French artist Isabelle Duverger. 
Dixon Place and The New Stage Theatre Company present world premiere of Cosmicomics, an original multimedia theatre piece inspired by chapters of Italo Calvino's matchless novel of the same name.
Directed by Ildiko Nemeth, Cosmicomics comprises a series of vignettes involving our narrator, Qfwfq, as he evolves across the history of the universe. From his innocent childhood before the Big Bang, when everything he loved was packed into a single point, we continue on to his love affairs and nostalgic middle age. Along the way we witness wondrous things: the birth of light and color, the identity crises of creatures that move from sea to land, the inner lives of mollusks, and more. Against a cosmic backdrop we recognize fundamentally human experiences in the tales: obsession, neurosis, love and transformation.
