Laia Cabrera, Isabelle Duverger nominated for Outstanding Innovative Design (Projection Design) for the 3rd consecutive time for The New Stage Theatre Company's production of Night at the New York Innovative Theater Awards 2015. 

Night by Charles L. Mee receives 6 IT Award nominations! Outstanding Performance Art Production, Outstanding Director (Ildiko Nemeth), Outstanding Choreography/Movement (Ildiko Nemeth), Outstanding Lighting Design (Federico Restrepo), Outstanding Innovative Design (Laia Cabrera, Isabelle Duverger, Ildiko Nemeth), Outstanding Actor in a Lead Role (Chris Tanner)

Night at the Theater for the New City - From April 24 to May 10, 2015

Multimedia Theater Play NIGHT with projection design, video art and animations by Spanish filmmaker and videoartist Laia Cabrera in collaboration with French projection designer and animator Isabelle Duverger. 

Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, "Night (Thyestes 2.0)" combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. This world premiere performance brings a bold mix of standout projection design and visuals, choreography, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.

Directed by Ildiko Nemeth in collaboration with:
Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger - Video and Projection Design
Federico Restrepo - Lighting
Egle Paulauskaite - Costume
Galway McCullough - Fight Choreography
Jon Gilbert Leavitt - Sound Engineering

With Beth Dodye Bass*, Dana Boll, Adam Boncz, Kaylin Lee Clinton, Sofia O.C. , Catherine Correa, Geraldine Dulex, Markus Hirnigel*, Brian Linden*, Galway McCullough*, Brandon Olson*, Jeanne Lauren Smith, and Chris Tanner.

May-June 2015: Video and Projection Design for the Play Ronensbourgh

A place—a proposed utopian solution to all society’s problems.
The Heiber family lives in a world that’s rapidly crumbling, plagued by flawed and outdated social and political models. Meanwhile a group of aristocrats, led by Helmut Ronen, is creating the perfect city as the answer to all society’s problems: RONENSBOURGH.
Ronensbourgh is a very contemporary and highly experimental piece, written in a Heiner Müller’s style (no stage directions. No formatting. SOME CAPITAL LETTERS THAT SEEM RANDOM BUT THEY’RE NOT). The play possesses relevant questions about identity, society and home; about the conception of those ideas, and the dislodging of the very things our society holds as important.
