Lisa Rafaela Clair

This new work is inspired by the final work of Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who in 1975 went "In Search of the Miraculous" by building the smallest sailboat known to man in an attempt to cross the ocean. He was determined lost at sea, never to be found. This play is a meditation on those who have disappeared and the people who continue to believe they may one day reappear. It calls into question the common search for the miraculous within us all and attempts to re-write history just a bit in order to ask, "What if a miracle were found?"

Lisa Rafaela Clair is a 2012-2013 Performance Project Artist-in-Residence. Learn more about Lisa Rafaela Clair!
