I haven’t given up on horror–if anything, I’m personally diving into more horror flash fiction and audio play scripts–but 2017 is the year for the premiere of the large scale theatre project I’ve been working on since November 2014.
Transmission is about aliens, interstellar travel, new technology, collaboration, family, loss, and the human race’s place in the universe. It’s science fiction at its best and even better, theatre at it’s best. I’ve had a blast playing with film, audio, podcasting, dance, and augmented reality as a writer and dramaturg.
And this year, I finally get to share all this work with you.
A few months ago, I put together this short video clip for Volcano Theatre’s Emerging Artist showcase to introduce the work that Ian Garrett and the rest of the creative team have been working on for the past few years.
The background comes from the summer 2015 Indy Convergence where we explored the themes, but also the performance formats of geo-location and site-driven work that drive Transmission. It’s where we started to figure out how to make the context and the content speak to each other–to tell a story that can be followed by individuals in pieces but speaks to us all as members of the human race.
Now we have this almost fully formed story and the pieces are coming together for it’s launch!
