Momentum Of Isolation (Venables Theatre)

March 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Shay Kubler | Radical System Art

MOI- MOMENTUM OF ISOLATION bases its performances around social isolation and loneliness. The performance explores the objective and subjective experiences through the individual, the group and modern society- a society with shifting values and an ever-advancing digital way of life. To shape a digital world on stage, MOI places live interactive video and sound around the performers. These elements enhance ideas on how technology influences our lives, and that it can both empower and disempower us.

Further distilling isolation, solo performances and the extended social isolation of one character on stage are critical to the arc of the performance. Within MOI, one character’s interactions are only with inanimate objects. Through puppeteering and stage craft, the inanimate world comes to life, which highlights how social isolation can disrupt our connection to reality. Our social bonds allow us to understand that we have an impact on what is around us- that we exist. Research began on MOI in 2018 after Artistic Director Shay Kubler read about the “Minister of Loneliness” in the U.K. In studies, social isolation was found to be more detrimental to health over alcohol and cigarettes. In 2018, MOI felt like a critical work to explore. Now, in 2023, it has become even more relevant and accessible.
