The Space Between


Presented on the mainstage of the Loeb Drama Center

at the American Repertory Theater, 2010


In April of 2009, Calla Videt directed her senior thesis on the Mainstage of the Loeb Drama Center, home of the American Repertory Theater, entitled THE SPACE BETWEEN. The production re-imagined the life story of Caltech professor and physicist Richard Feynman in new, mythic proportions, featuring aerial trapeze, movement, dance, video, and text. It was the first original, student production to debut in the mainstage in 15 years.


At the end of his life, Richard Feynman dreams about his youth, the death of his first love, the nature of the universe, and his work on the atomic bomb. His dying wife Eurydice, with her penchant for Samuel Beckett, reads and writes letters to another physicist from a hospital room in Albuquerque. A woman chasing down two elementary particles--two quarks--goes through her own journey towards understanding the universe. Her lover, an artist, tries to do the same by capturing the things he loves on a canvas. Meanwhile, other scientists are deciphering Nature's secrets. When two different deaths fling the story into a reimagined telling of the Orpheus myth and a journey into a new space--a new world emerges. THE SPACE BETWEEN delves into multiple relationships and intertwines several parallel storylines along similar themes. What does it mean to see? What does it mean to know? A show about art and science, sin and knowledge, blindness and sight, its stories eventually bring us into a space between dreaming and waking, knowledge and uncertainty, life and death.
