"That's not politics, it's poetry...it's work of theatrical alchemy in which ideas are turned into art by making them more beautiful."-Wall Street Journal
The media-savvy Builders Associationï¿½who mesmerized audiences here with ALLADEEN and SUPER VISIONï¿½continue their multimedia examinations of our accelerated culture. CONTINUOUS CITY looks at how our "networked selves" are stretched to occupy multiple locations. Alternately experiencing a sense of location and dislocation, a traveling father and daughter find themselves in Shanghai, Los Angeles, Toronto, and Mexico City as they seek to sustain connectivity in the midst of high speed lives, transnational business dealings, and fading cell phone signals. With pointed humor and insight, CONTINUOUS CITY uses state-of-the-art technology to reflect the local and far-ranging lives people lead now.
The Wexner Center is one of the co-commissioners for this latest Builders' stage work, following up on our creative development and residency support for SUPER VISION. Sequences filmed here in Columbus will be integrated into CONTINUOUS CITY's globe-spanning dreamscape. The company is also connecting directly into each locale that hosts the piece with a participatory web site for your input (continouscity.org).
