 "L'appel du vide”, or “The Call of the Void”, is a 6 act interdisciplinary performance created for Ortega Y Gasset Projects by Patricia Brace that mirrors one person's story as it travels through the collective consciousness of 6 performers. Performed on a mirror-stage, “L’appel du vide” uses repetition, reversal, and reflection in an attempt to create the interstice between fantasy and fiction.  Like love, as in lust, “L’appel du vide” quotes Marcel Proust, Oscar Wilde, and Jacques Lacan to portray desiring something other than what you have, or what you know. Viewing this performance as a visual and psychological analysis into absence, or the void, Brace collaborates with rappers, dancers, programmers, musicians and native French speakers to create a scenario of both interconnected and disparate desires, violence and truth.   Featuring the work of artist and programmer A. P. Vague, classical dancer Marie Ferguson, country punk noise band Irrevery, identical twins Sam and Lex Steiner, native French speaker Marine Cornuet, and guest appearance by deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, "L'appel du vide" juxtaposes lived experience with the desired, depicting one person's life as it grows increasingly symbolic.  oygprojects.com
