ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Part road movie, part fractured memory, part love story… Welcome to Nowhere (bullet hole road) is a hybrid of theater and cinema. During the performance, a constant stream of video is projected above the cast. In scenes of prolonged stillness, silence and impassivity, doppelgangers of the characters we meet onstage navigate a hyper-real cinematic landscape as if lost in a dream, creating parallel narratives that echo, reflect and refract each moment of the play.
Underplayed and restrained, the live performers’ softly spoken words tell the story of a man who is haunted by his past and drifting across America. This continual juxtaposition of stage and cinema is one of complement and contradiction, suggesting multiple ways of interpreting the dynamics between characters and the perpetually shifting narrative fragments.
