Tinder played from Jan 8-9, 2010 in the Mainstage Theatre.
About the show
An idiosyncratic song cycle about departure and return and the ephemeral nature of insects. To create Tinder, Latitude 14 recontextualized eight songs from Red Fly/Blue Bottle, their highly acclaimed multimedia event that bridged concert, cabinet of curiosities, and video installation. Veering between the miniature and larger than life, high-tech and low, absolute restraint and deep reserves of emotion, Tinder melds a street-busking sensibility with high art to deliver richly layered songs and spellbinding video.
