It looks like the new stage production I’m working on, Organon, will debut in winter 2014. This gives us a year to complete it. I’m often amazed at how long it takes, in the Montreal context at least, to get stage productions off the ground. We have been working on this in a pre production mode for almost three years already!
Organon is an upcoming stage work I’m co-directing with Mélanie Verville and Parabolik Guerilla Theatre. The performance engages with the concepts of emergence and evolution, and is more specifically concerned with the processes that occur in the interstices between the various levels of organization that make up the complexity we observe in nature, from sub-atomic interactions to psycho-social organizations. The transfer of memory and the acquisition of knowledge (cognition) is herein regarded as being symmetrical with the abstract information transfers that occur from one level of organization to an other, in the energy-dissipation driven self-organization of the cosmos.
