An artists work is always being interpreted by those who view it. Interpreted and colored by a viewers own life experiences and personal expectations that they individually bring into the theater, tinting their perceptions of what is in front of them. Certainly not much different from what happens outside a theaters walls if we all witness the same event, at the exact same time, will our report of the moment be the same? What is the truth? Is there a truth? Whose truth is right? Whose is wrong? Whose perspective?
WHAT'S MISSING hones in on the multi-layered complications of perception. Staged in the round, each side of the audience will experience the work differently from those seated in another area. As the spoken text and commanding physical acuity of these two seasoned artists continue to revolve and evolve, each audience member will be challenged anew to interpret and reinterpret what theyre seeing and hearing, what they think they believe to be happening.
THE GLUE FACTORY PROJECT are original full-evening length dancetheater productions created on internationally & nationally acclaimed performers over the age of 40.
