SONTAG: REBORN draws from cultural critic Susan Sontag's journals, tracing her academic and personal journey from the age of 14 to her emergence as a singular public intellectual. In REBORN, single performer Moe Angelos' actions and words are magnified and transformed using a richly visual media environment to create an elegant portrait of a magnetic personality under careful construction.
Formed in 1994 and led by director Marianne Weems, The Builders Association creates original theater works about life in the 21st century. Previous works include JET LAG, ALLADEEN, SUPER VISION, CONTINUOUS CITY and HOUSE / DIVIDED.
"The dazzling shows of The Builders Association make just about every other theater company look as if it's living in the past." -The New York Times (about 2010's JET LAG)
REBORN was made possible with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. For the full list of funders, please visit thebuildersassociation.org.
