In the beginning, was the silent film.  Then came the talkie, then the classic, then the blockbuster thriller – full of technology and explosions and car crashes, complex twists and plot turns. But what if you could watch the director herself ‘play’ the film in front of you using only her hands and infrared cameras?  And have the score created in front of you in surround sound, sung by one of Philip Glass’ famous lyric sopranos and a battery of lit up laptop devices?  Now you don’t have to imagine…..

I hope you’ll join me this weekend for Toni Dove’s world premiere of Lucid Possession.  Batten down your hatches for a wild ride with robotic screens, live mix video, my live score on digital violin, Hai-Ting Chinn on vocals and sampling, songs by Elliott Sharp, with Toni Dove using real time motion sensing to control characters and animate video in real time!

It’s a crazy three dimensional video pop-up book with performers playing the automated stage machine like an instrument. Technical directors Ed Bear and Matt Tennie improvise on robotics and control an 8-channel sound system that combines improvisation and pre-recorded sound. Software design by R. Luke DuBois. Robotics by Leif Krinkle and Ed Bear. Staging co-directed by Bob McGrath. Costume design by Karen Young.

More events coming soon, including concerts with Guy Klucevsek, China with Bang on a Can, a World Premiere with Cornelius Dufallo, the Unplay festival, tons!

First, however, I would love to see you this weekend.  I can only promise you fun and provocation.

Cheers!
