18 1/2 MINUTES
Donovan & Calderón present 18 1/2 Minutes at JACK in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

At the center of the Watergate scandal, brought on and exacerbated by an extensive archive of surveillance audio tapes installed to record President Nixon's conversations in the White House, lies an 18 1/2 minute gap.

Using surreal humor 18 1/2 Minutes explores the historical, technological and political circumstances around this mysterious gap and broader questions of time, silence, and erasure at the center of one the most famous political scandals in modern U.S. political history.

Written, Directed and Performed by Sean Donovan and Sebastián Calderón Bentin
Video Design by Jeremiah Barber

Costume Design by Connie Strayer

Sean Donovan (American theater and dance artist) and Sebastián Calderón Bentin (Panamanian theater artist and performance scholar) have been in collaboration for 10 years making original performance. Starting from an interdisciplinary and international perspective DONOVAN & CALDERÓN draws on the surreal, the banal and the everyday to create new theater work that responds to present social issues. They create performances that address particular social, political and historical questions while exploring the techniques and qualities of theater as a medium. The work has been seen at The Incubator Arts Project, Galapagos Art Space, The International Theater Festival of Panama, The Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Stanford University and New York University.  

Here's what the critics said of Donovan & Calderón's last piece, THE CLIMATE CHRONICLES:

"THE CLIMATE CHRONICLES succeeds wildly...staged with absurd panache and true-to-life humor." - Backstage

"A solid piece of downtown theater." - Culturebot
