Point of Departure

Point of Departure

Premiered in New York City

at Theatre for a New City

September 16th- 25th, 2011

Point of Departure takes an absurdist look into the security screenings, flight delays, business travelers, and other oddities of a day in the life of a post 9/11 airport terminal.   This highly physical, multimedia production mines the dark humor of today's airport experience. 


Point of Departure peeks into the wonder of taking flight, as the audience is taken on a joyride of modern dance, stimulating projections, and breath-taking aerial feats.


Point of Departure premiered at Theater for the New City in September 2011.

Review for Point of Departure

"It's such an entertaining, visceral experience that it's almost impossible to describe all of the fun, fascinating stage pictures created...The show is extremely well composed from top to bottom."
