Theory of Flight at EMPAC

  • EMPAC Goodman Studio 110 8th Street Troy, NY, 12180 United States

Theory of Flight premieres at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in Troy, NY.  Dreams of flight, animations of molecular processes made from yarn and buttons and lace, bird songs and molecular music intersect in this scientific and emotional pursuit of human flight. Music, story, and animation by Anna Lindemann. Performed by soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon as the bird spirit and Anna Lindemann as scientist Alida Kear. Directed by Emma Lunbeck with costumes by Kylin Mettler. The performance is followed by a "Flying Feast" concocted by Ellie Markovitch and Rose Mitchell—a multi-taste experience inspired by the avian world.
