The Million Underscores

March 11 - March 22


LAPA is a mesmerizing language machine for the theater following Landman’s journey to pluck a newly formed star called Agam The Swan: “whoever tears down this star may choose to be freed from dreaming.” Treating language with the material curiosity of early abstract artists LAPA exposes the border of language and sound, of poetry and meaning. The Million Underscores stage this genre-bending work, modulating between visual composition, soundscape, performance, and choreography, to emphasize the distance between words, objects, sound, and the body.  Amidst Industrialization, the human ability to reach beyond the terrestrial, and a decrepit heaven, LAPA is a ballad for the end of dreaming.

The Million Underscores are a “mad and wonderful” (David Herskovits- Target Margin Theater) experimental theater company based in Brooklyn under the artistic direction of Nicolas Noreña. Founded in Summer 2013  the company has developed alongside a qualitative study of numbers, and experiments in aesthetic drive, abstract composition, and collaborative writing. 

Their work has been presented at MoMA, Target Margin Theater, Vital Joint, Triskelion Arts, Mabou Mines, Movement Research, and The Brick Theater among others. 

We make highly visual and physical eccentric theater works that interrogate the action and form of theater. We value every element of performance as an independent voice. Through density, multidirectionality and juxtaposition we generate fields for the audience to notice, think and reify modes of perception, organization and understanding.
