Being or Nothingness (BorN) is an interdisciplinary perforamnce installation with video, contemporary dance and live original music. Conceived by Michael J. Lopez with original compositions by Jeff Porter of The Claptet, BorN chronicles a story of man who faces an unthinkable tragedy and his subsequent quest to find his lost identity, family, and home. He is forced to embark on a journey along an empty road as he attempts to remember the events that led him there. One story line moves forward in time while the other reveals glimpses of his past. Throughout, his memories forcefully intrude and become more distorted as his body undergoes the stress of physical exhaustion and extreme hunger. As time elapses, the sharp distinction between paranoia and waking life dissolves-leaving the man victim to face his own violent psychological demons. BorN is a complicated head spinning adventure, which leaves you wondering where reality ends and dementia begins.
