[Cloud Eye Control and Anna Oxygen] Cloud Eye Control—Chi-wang Yang, Miwa Matreyek and Anna Oxygen—is a multidisciplinary performance group fusing animation, experimental theater, pop music and puppetry. Like nothing you have seen, CEC uses deceptively simple video technology to produce interactive, virtual theater sets, integrated with moving screens and the haunting voice of Anna Oxygen. Their work highlights the lo-fi, while maintaining a playful sense of wonder and trickery. CEC will perform live three narratives: Final Space, Dream of Lucid Living and Subterranean Heart. Afterward, Oxygen, object of a cult following for her live shows, will lead the audience in an interactive aerobics workout. This event is sponsored by Esurance. Tickets $9 and are available only to year-round Film Society members whose memberships are valid through May 31, 2008 and to Festival Fans valid through May 9, 2008. General public sales begin on April 3.
