Cosmicomics

by Ildiko Nemeth

directed by Ildiko Nemeth

 

Cosmicomics, an original multimedia theatre piece based on the novel of the same title by Italo Calvino. Adapted, directed and designed for the stage by Ildiko Nemeth, this stunning new work comprises a captivating series of vignettes involving our narrator, Qfwfq, as he evolves across the history of the universe. From his innocent childhood before the Big Bang, when everything he loved was packed into a single point, we continue on to his love affairs and nostalgic middle age. Along the way we witness wondrous things: the birth of light and color, the identity crises of creatures that move from sea to land, the inner lives of mollusks, and more. We recognize fundamentally human experiences in these whimsical, passionate tales: obsession, neurosis, love and transformation, played out against an exquisite cosmic backdrop.
