Latitude 14: Red Fly/Blue Bottle
Friday + Saturday, November 5 + 6, 2010, 8 PM

A clock explodes. A man departs for destinations unknown. Hypnotic songs fill an empty house as a lone woman peers through her microscope, trying to make sense of his absence. A theatrical event that bridges concert, cabinet of curiosities, and video installation, Red Fly/Blue Bottle explores the mediating effects of memory and how we use the power of our imagination to surmount that which we have lost.

Check out a clip from the performance here and some of the music here.
