Experiments in Time-Based Text
September 23, 2011—October 13, 2012

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.
