About the show
Part live performance, video installation, and interactive media lab, Keep Your Electric Eye On Me is an interwoven exploration of transformation, dual realities, hysteria, and the desire for the unattainable. Throughout this disturbing and atmospheric work, a multifaceted narrative reverberates through choreographed movement, spoken text, multi-screen projections, sensors and live-feed cameras. In this high-tech/lo-tech world, complex sonic vistas and spectral mirages meld, collide and shimmer.
