150 W San Carlos
San Jose, California

Some things are purely mythic like Survival Research Labs, which springs from the shell of abandoned buildings, monster robotic history, and fire. An interdisciplinary mash-up like no other, SRL, brings a newly conceived performance to ZeroOne San Jose full of its legendary machines, flame-throwers, and bombastic sound. Humans are only present as audience or operators; in this show it's all about the machines. As described by founder Mark Pauline, an SRL performance is comprised of "ritualistic interactions between machines, robots, and special effects devices." Whatever else you call it, (and the title won't be announced until just before the show), we call it big fun, exciting, and something you won't want to miss. This one is definitely for more than the brainiac crowd - it's monster machine, meets hovercraft, meets huge sculptural creatures, meets fire. See you there.

They say it will be located "Behind South Hall" this isn't very clear, so if anyone wants to update that, please feel free.

Tix can be had here: Artsopolis"
