Conceived and directed by Ildiko Nemeth and produced by The New Stage Theatre Company, whose productions have been critically acclaimed for their complex nature and vivid realization.
In the piece, an aging scientist, realizing his inquiries continually return him to a model of his own mind, devises a set of experiments that blur the distinction between his inner and outer worlds. New Stage Theatre Company (NTSC) made an auspicious La MaMa debut last season with "Oh, Those Beautiful Weimar Girls!," an evening of the music and dance associated with exotic dancer Anita Berber, who symbolized many the decadence of Weimar era Berlin.
"Mapping Möbius" reflects Ildiko Nemeth's continuing interest in German subjects (Möbius was descended on his mother's side from Martin Luther) while returning to plays about scientific explorations. In 2006, New Stage Theatre Company presented "Some Historic/Some Hysteric," a play set in late 19th Century Paris, based on the "Tuesday lectures" of Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, the founder of modern neurology.
