Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used to Be

September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen

Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler

Will you ever look back on right now with longing? When Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler left Burque for San Francisco in 2011, the couple—longtime performance collaborators—found themselves unexpectedly thrown out of sync as they tried to stay afloat in the pricey, tech-obsessed city. “We both had jobs that put us in front of computers most of the day,” says Wright, “and then had phones that we looked at on the way home, and then computers we could get in front of for the evening.”

Their burgeoning disconnection ultimately led to a new act that incorporated dance, physical theater and poetic narrative into absurdist vignettes about memory and togetherness. “We began to imagine having a sense of nostalgia, in the future, for all of the things as they are now—smartphones, Facebook, Buzzfeed, apps, etc.,” Wright says. September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen captures real and imagined eras in a couple’s lifespan, and “gluing it all together is the outline of a love story.” The show comes to the Box (100 Gold SW) on Saturday, Aug. 2, at 10:30pm, and Sunday, Aug. 3, at 7:30pm.
