Experiments in Time-Based Text

September 23 – December 3, 2011

Taking an existing text as a starting point, artists explode the concept of script and bring to life works that imbue music, film, theater, dance, interactive sculpture, and talks with the essence of the text. With such varied sources as diaries of polar exploration, science fiction, ancient Roman play fragments, and an essay on shadows, this series focuses on the process of creating performance and art, sparked by a passage of words.

EMPAC 2011-2012 presentations, residencies, and commissions are supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts (with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Community Connections Fund of the MetLife Foundation, and the Boeing Company Charitable Trust), and the New York State Council for the Arts. Special thanks to the Jaffe Fund for Experimental Media and Performing Arts for support of artist commissions.
