Arcane Collective

Return to Absence

New York Live Arts Theater

Co-presented with Irish Arts Center
As inspiration for their latest production, Arcane Collective delves delves into the Samuel Beckett trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. In reverence to Beckett, Return to Absence embodies the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to these remarkable stories. Constructing a fluent language of movement and environments as abstract and absurd as Beckett’s unparalleled composition of words, the dance emerges as an intimate portrayal of humanity; a rich and ridiculous non-linear storytelling.
