The New Stage Theatre Company presents Cosmicomics, an original multimedia theatre piece based on the novel of the same title by Italo Calvino, adapted for stage and directed by Ildiko Nemeth. This world premiere stage adaptation comprises a captivating series of stories in which mathematical formulae and cellular structures recall the evolution of the universe.
Though Calvino’s characters are non-human, they represent the very essence of our human experience. Narrator Qfwfq takes us on a journey from his childhood — the great unity before the Big Bang, when everything he loved was packed into a single point–through his life as a mollusk, into the throes of his love affairs, and continuing on to modern times. His tales are funny and poignant ones of obsession, neurosis, love and transformation, played out against a cosmic backdrop.
