„What distinguishes “Back to the Present,” apart from a particularly personable, sexy cast, is the manic good humor of the entire enterprise. The piece ends with a crazed free-for-all, with everyone stripping (or being stripped) naked and hundreds of stuffed animals and other detritus hurled around the set. It’s just exhilarating.“ – New York Times
With her site specific performance C. Macras undertakes a journey into the past. Performances, music, readings, video and slide shows are parts of a spatial installation with which visitors can interact. A dining room and a bar can also be found in the labyrinth of abandoned rooms.
