Old New Year

Old New Year
New life, old hopes
By Lost & Found Project
A new multidisciplinary theatre piece exploring a mosaic of interrelated personal stories, relationships, and struggles faced by New-Yorkers trying to find their way home.
Lost & Found Project, an edgy ensemble of next generation storytellers, curates a world premiere of “Old New Year”. The fifth original production by Lost & Found Project.
Continuing the company’s tradition of working with the Verbatim technique, Old New Year, the fifth original production by Lost & Found Project, merges personal experiences of the L&Founders.
The engaging narrative of “Old New Year” recalls those moments when you’re looking at the lighted windows of NYC buildings in the evening and trying to guess what kind of life takes place behind them and their tenants. What events would cause them to decide if they will forge a New Path in a New Day, or repeat the Old Stumbles of the Old Year?
To make the right decision, even if it’s difficult, you have to rely on something beyond yourself for guidance: Maybe that’s the moment to remember your roots, even if you have not thought about them for the last 15 years.
And in this condition, isn’t going to a party the best medicine?
