“Return to Absence is a bold and beautiful production, one which is extraordinarily moving, meticulously articulated and perfectly executed. This is a show that demands and deserves to be seen.” - The Irish Examiner

With mesmerizing concentration and an urgent kinetic dexterity, the work of Arcane Collective pushes the boundaries of conventional contemporary dance, by altering perceptions of the body, space, and time. Founded by dance artists Morleigh Steinberg and Oguri, this season Arcane Collective delves into the Samuel Beckett trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. In reverence to Beckett, Return to Absence embodies the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to these remarkable stories. Constructing a fluent language of movement and environments as abstract and absurd as Beckett’s unparalleled composition of words, the dance weaves a non-linear tale of decrepit persistence and playful futility of life at the end of its tether.

Directed by Morleigh Steinberg and Oguri

Performed by Boaz Barkan, Andrés Corchero, Oguri, and Morleigh Steinberg

Original Score by Feltlike with Paul Chavez, and The Edge
