This is my time. It’s mine and it’s yours.
This, is what it feels like.
Fall madly in love, fall from a great height, fall incurably ill. What are the odds of these happening to you? Our universe is an infinite number of particles moving haphazardly like dust specks in a sunbeam. Colliding, connecting and breaking apart again. One thing is certain, it will not stop; it never does. Enjoy the ride.
The comfort of numbers is about interconnectedness; about our personal relationships with others, with reality and with life. The play centres around two physicists who are struggling with the concept of time. Meanwhile, music comes alive, and there is some dancing too! Playing with perception and proportion, the very small; such as subatomic particles, our individual tragedies and miracles is contrasted with the very big; the universe, Love and Death.
A question emerges: How do we take the very personal heartbreaks and losses that make up our private lives and understand them as part of a larger world?
Where did it all start?
Rooted in the deep issue of how theater relates to life, the play strives to create a bridge between science and art. The starting point is the physics concept of nonlocality but the aim is to penetrate the abstract layers of this notion and get to the core; the raw material of the human spirit that reacts to the intuition of causation and chance.
The Comfort of Numbers is a new play by playwright Paulina Barros, directed by Danya Taymor.
It will be presented as part of the New Plays Now festival taking place at the Pershing Square Signature Center in New York City. We need your help to make it as wonderful as it ought to be.
Theatre is a collective effort and we want to recognize the work of every person that puts their time and talent into this project, the majority of the funds will go towards artist fees and the materials they need to bring their ideas into life.
For your support, we offer perks ranging from a HUGE thank you via Facebook and Twitter, to an intimate coffee moment with the playwright. Important to note, you will also get every prize level below your contribution.
