Nausea (2009)

Nausea (2009) 

A Theatrical Performance Piece, created by Sahar Sajadieh – Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, New York, NY.

Performers:  Yu-Ching Wang, Sahar Sajadieh, Fanting Cheng

This theatrical performance work was inspired by Robert Wilson’s Deafman’s Glance (1971). Nausea is about time, body, abuse, and struggle. Three female characters, haunted by the sound of a clock on a garbage can, go through their personal journeys while passing by each other and constantly clashing. This piece is a dance-like struggle of the three characters and their response to the exploitative system. The use of extreme slow motions, minimalist set and costume design, and the use of metaphoric objects(such as milk, bread, clock, white sheets) create a trance-like environment for the audience, and bring into mind Wilson’s earlier performance pieces. This work was created as a final performance in Prof. Richard Schechner’s graduate class (Experimental Performances of the 60’s and 70’s), and performed at the Performance Studies department, NYU, Tisch School of the Arts in 2009.
