VSA Texas is pleased to present San Antonio's Jump-Start Performance Co. in collaboration with Divadlo z Pasáže (Theatre from the Passage) Stranger explores themes of marginalization, inertia, despair, and the experience and impact of sudden freedom. Jump-Start Performance Co. and Divadlo z Pasáže will create this new work together, during Divadlo's San Antonio residency, using the metaphor of a surprise guest who disrupts an interminable dinner party. The sudden freedom from habitualized constraints echoes the Slovak experience after the fall of the Soviet bloc. How does this freedom affect our attitudes and actions? What is normal and what is strange?
Stranger marks the second time Jump-Start and Divadlo z Pasáže have worked together. In 2009, they partnered to tour Divadlo z Pasáže's original play, Protected Territory, to Cedar Rapids, IA, San Antonio and New York City. Inspired by these incredibly gifted performers, Jump-Start made plans to collaborate with Divadlo on a new work that would include artists from both companies. Stranger is the culmination of that dream and an incredible opportunity - artistically and culturally - for these two organizations.
