ONE HEART FOR TWO

Created by Simòn Adinia Hanukai & Brandon Hogstad

Winkel & Balktick Laboratory, NYC - September 1, 2012

 

Summer, 1967: Doctors around the world rush to complete the first successful heart transplant. An ambitious surgeon gets the opportunity of a lifetime when a pair of lovers, unable to live without one another, asks him to perform the impossible. In front of a select audience of observing "scientists," the doctor races against time to keep their love alive, while a chorus of otherworldly singing nurses keep our own hearts pounding as we ask ourselves what we would sacrifice for love.

Horace Mann Theater - March 7-10, 2012

 

An interactive, multi-media performance in which the audience accompanies four characters on their personal journeys as their birthday worlds collapse and unveil their mythological DNA.

STACK OF FIVES

Created by Jonathan Camuzeaux & Andrew Belcher with Massbliss

SeeMee Exhibition Space, NYC - December 2014-January 2015

 

Stack of Fives is a collaborative photographic exploration of story-telling, through which artists are prompted to push the boundaries of their creative process. The result is a collection of large-scale photographs, each telling stories in unique and unexpected ways. Within the confines of the photography medium, Stack of Fives uses elements of staging and performance, of set design and storyboarding to explore how artists from different fields, with varied background and training, approach expressing themselves within an imposed and unfamiliar medium.

Flamboyán Theater, NYC - November 16-22, 2014

 

Through word, movement and video, the piece weaves together three interdependent narratives: a young Romanian man and his newborn daughter on a 25-year journey into the once forbidden West after the bloody regime of Nicolae Ceauescu is swept away with the fall of the Iron Curtain; a pair of construction workers dispatched to slice up the world with a multitude of new walls; and fantastical administrators, the masterminds behind this caustic quest of brick and mortar.
