Point of Departure
Smoke&Mirrors Collaborative presents Point of Departure Directed by Jonathan David Martin of Lincoln Center Theater's Warhorse, and originally conceived with Zoey Martinson (Shakespeare in the Park's Alls Well That Ends Well) and MacKenzie Meehan (Classic Stage Company's Double Falsehood).
Point of Departure follows a series of extreme characters through the absurd landscape of a post 9/11 airport terminal. Hidden baggage fees and security pat-downs merely scratch the surface of the obstacles each passenger must overcome, in order to finally depart to their chosen destination.
This highly physical, multimedia production mines the dark humor of today's airport experience. Point of Departure peeks into the wonder of taking flight, as the audience is taken on a joyride of modern dance, stimulating projections, and breath-taking aerial feats.
Performances will be held at Theater for a New City located at 155 1st Avenue, New York, NY. Tickets are $18 Adult and $15 Student/Senior with group discounts available (please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to inquire further).

Point of Departure is the highly-anticipated inaugural production from the Brooklyn-based company, Smoke&Mirrors Collaborative. Produced with the generous support of the Annenberg Fellowship for the Arts, and workshopped at NYU Graduate Acting Alumni's Studio Tisch Festival, 2009 and Triskelion Arts. Now, three years later, Smoke&Mirrors Collaborative revisit the well-received theater piece to further develop and bring to an actualized production at Theater for the New City - thereby presenting this modern day airport drama a week after the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
