A pledge of allegiance to the eternal pursuit of happiness, "Phantasies" questions our understanding of “the underdog” and his/her/their role in accepting, or refusing, the struggles that define our daily existence. "Phantasies" provides a complex, non-linear, excavation of the potential that lies embedded within every living being. With "Phantasies", Madan teams up with world-renowned designer Agyesh Madan (founder of neo-luxury brand Stòffa), and long-time collaborator Stephanie Saywell. “The play of children is determined by their wishes – really by the child’s ONE wish, which is to be grown-up... He always plays at being grown-up; in play he imitates what is known to him of the lives of adults.” ~ Signmund Freud – The Poet and Daydreaming Phantasies was developed with the help of Gibney Dance’s Work Up Residency, as well as The Performance Project @ University Settlement Presented as part of the Guest Artist Series at The Performance Project @ University Settlement. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=374352 Speyer Hall, University Settlement Speyer Hall, University Settlement
