Lauren Petty’s Multimedia Dance Theater Performance Keep Your Electronic Eye on Me Premieres April 30th

Keep Your Electric Eye On Me by HERE Resident Artists Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty is part of its 2013-2014 producing season. This multimedia dance theatre performance features Madeline Best and Carlton Ward, Original Music by Brian Rogers and Choreography by Tara O’Con. This premiere engagement plays 8 performances, April 30 – May 10, at HERE (145 Sixth Avenue, just below Spring Street).

Part live performance, video installation, and interactive media lab, Keep Your Electric Eye On Me is an interwoven exploration of transformation, dual realities, hysteria, and the desire for the unattainable. A poetic narrative reverberates through choreographed movement and spoken text, as cinematic mirages meld and collide with complex sonic vistas, which activate and transform the space — centering on two performers alongside live feed cameras, multiscreen video projections, microphones, monitors and sensors.

Utilizing high-tech and lo-tech methods, creators Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty are active and visible participants throughout the piece as they live-mix and process media to create a complex visual world that blurs the lines between analog/digital, live/pre-recorded, and reality/dream.
