THE WAY AT MIDNIGHT
Directed by Joanna Russo, Mondo’s latest work is inspired by contemporary questions of migration and (dis) orientation. The Way at Midnight explores confrontations with losing and being lost from the colonial period through the digital age and incorporates theatrical performance, visual installation and live and recorded music. Two performers—Hannah Pepper-Cunningham and Nick Slie—bring humor and gravitas to their portrayals of seven distinct characters confronting their ancestry and looking towards an uncertain future. Framing the performance, visual artist Miwa Matreyek’s custom animations are projected onto four surfaces of the CAC warehouse, while composer Peter Bowling’s dynamic sound design and original compositions fill the auditory space.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
