World premiere at La MaMa, The Ellen Stewart Theatre –November 19 – 29, 2015
Toronto, CA – Panamerican Routes Festival, organized by Aluna Theatre, October 2016. www.rutas.ca
Undefined Fraction is a puppet theatre dance piece inspired by the Spanish-language play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca— Life’s a Dream—which traces the patterns of inequality and reflects on the principles of justice, guilt, punishment and the conflict between free will and fate.
Loco7 will explore the philosophical question of whether this so-called “real world” is actually some sort of illusion, a “dream” from which we will be awakened some day. The moral question, then, is how should we be acting if this is some sort of test, some revelation about our character, our “nobility” that will be revealed at death?
