Mister C fantasizes about life beyond his pandemic prison – a 6th floor New York walk up – while his faithful companion ‘Depression’, dreams of a different type of exit.
“tHe aGe oF aNXieTy,” responds to the anguish and insanity of the past year. The 40-minute work features a cast of 16 dancing exuberantly among New York City landmarks and follows the character Monsieur le Clown as he dreams of post-pandemic and post-Trump freedom. The film vividly depicts personal and collective despair but finds pockets of optimism as it celebrates the spirit and tenacity of the city and its inhabitants.
