ABRONS ARTS CENTER
466 Grand St, New York, NY 10002
Landscape with the Fall of Icarus is a new, evening-length, solo performance by Samuael Topiary that explores western culture’s relentless compulsion to tempt fate and reach beyond our human limits. Told through the eyes of six fictionalized, historical, mythological and imaginary characters: Icarus, Pieter Brueghel, Henry Hudson, The Wall Street Minotaur, Amelia Earhart, and David Rockefeller; writer/performer Samuael Topiary excavates the symbolic and poetic resonances between the Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus and the legacy of contemporary culture’s most mythological empire; New York City.
