PERFORMANCE ART: FAR-FLUNG FOLLOWS FUNCTION, Oct. 10-12 @xMPL

Far-Flung Follows Function

Oct. 10-12
Far-Flung follows function

Thisis a theatrical work that turns the physical space of the Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL) into a networked application with human performers and Internet data collaborating to play the space. In this treatment of space as software, local conditions are put under the control of about two dozen far-flung geographies such as the cities of Singapore and New York. 

For instance, time-of-day and weather data accessed over the Internet will be used to drive lighting changes in the theater. In addition, typical computer user actions such as mouse management are transformed into a playful movement language and a set of rules that drive the performers’ actions, triggering cascades of events that highlight accident, error, failure, and crossed signals. Join the Finder, the Mouse-Cursor, the Writer, a pair of Lovers, and others as they struggle to maintain control of their giant application.


NOTE:  The audience will circulate with the performance.  Seating will be available for those needing it.
