The Company: As you are now so once were we

Ireland/Chile

 

“Snips apart the events and musings for four young actors and fits them back together into a seemingly fractured, but eloquent, breathless and utterly charming whole.… Don’t miss it.” —Irish Times

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

Dozens of cardboard boxes are brilliantly manipulated to create a variety of theatrical settings in this wry and engaging work by Chilean director Jose Miguel Jimenez and his Dublin-based company. They originally set out to create an adaptation of James Joyce’s Ulysses, but eventually conceded that it was impossible to stage what the novel is really about. Instead, they create their own day-long odyssey in which four characters reveal a multitude of perspectives on a day in which nothing extraordinary happens, yet lives are profoundly changed. Recently staged at Ireland’s National Theater, The Abbey, after winning the “best production” award at Dublin’s Absolut Fringe Festival, As you are now tackles the belief systems that make us feel we belong to a place and offers a glimpse of a world in which we all have more in common than we think.
