In this splintered adaptation of Cervantes’ novel, Isabel makes a 500 mile pilgrimage across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. Don Quixote: a pilgrimage mixes the massive (and metafictional) novel with a wide variety of modern sources. It examines the power of pilgrimage, how we get lost, and how we can find ourselves again.
Available Light’s latest world premiere production is the result of a year-long collaboration between playwright Jen Schlueter (Joint Artistic Director of the for/word company) and Available Light’s company of artists. Rather than attempting to directly adapt Cervantes’s nine-hundred page masterwork (widely regarded as the first modern novel) the collective used the book as a starting point to explore its structure, characters, themes, and contemporary relevance.Recommended if You Like: bobrauschenbergamerica, John Cage 101, tilting at windmills
