POINT OF DEPARTURE follows a series of extreme characters through the absurd landscape of a post 9/11 airport terminal. Hidden baggage fees and security pat-downs merely scratch the surface of the obstacles each passenger has to overcome, finally to depart to their chosen destination. This highly physical, multimedia production mines the dark humor of today’s airport experience. POINT OF DEPARTURE peeks into the wonder and frustrations of taking flight, as the audience is taken on a joyride of high-energy choreography, stimulating projections, and broad physical comedy. POINT OF DEPARTURE features Johnson Chong, Zoey Martinson, MacKenzie Meehan, Adam McNulty, and Court Wing. Has sets by Chris Morris with assistant David Meyer, costumes by Tilly Grimes, lighting by Gertjan Houben, video design by Katy Scoggin, and sound by Kortney Barber.
