Created by director and designer Carlos Soto, Everything, Alright follows the dissolution of a group faced with the intrusion of a visitor. The piece concerns itself with those mechanisms that define community by identifying the other. Informed by the threatening foreignness of post-war science fiction, the piece approaches a poetics of the moving body and its opposition to language; broaching the unspeakable: absence, solitude, the monstrous, anger, horror and pleasure. Viewed from shifting angles, once-affectionate gestures become aggressive; simultaneously reconstructing a traumatic event and staging a fantasy.
Carlos Soto is supported by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace program. LMCC.net
