What does it mean to disappear?
In Pursuit is a dance-theater piece that explores the themes of death, memory and hope through a collage of juxtapositions.
“I want the happiness that comes from both remembering and from fighting against remembering. A happiness that includes the sadness, pain and injury of experience but also goes forward. Not memory that works like an anchor, but like a catapult. Not a memory that you just arrive at, but one that’s a launch pad.”
In Pursuit of Happiness is an ongoing daily memory trip to remember and honor Mrs. Lenzu’s father, Antonio, who served as her guide and scaffolding. From a vibrating silence emerges unexpected meaning, so profoundly personal that is anonymous and universally accessible.
