At the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum

Thursday, November 4, 7 & 8 pm
Forum Lounge: Brody Condon, Without Sun

Artist Brody Condon will present the multimedia and live performance Without Sun: Modification (2009). Based on the 1983 Chris Marker film, Sans Soleil, Without Sun: Modification is an edited compilation of "found online performances" of individuals on a psychedelic substances. Condon screens these various internet clips and overlays a live performance featuring dancer Linda Austin and actor Russell Edge, who will re-interpret the erratic movements and verbalizations of people in the throes of revelatory and frightening psychoactive experiences. Without Sun: Modification (2009) re-envisions the behaviors of these self-published trippers from Condon's film through the precision and expressivity of contemporary dance. Taking up where Marker left off, Condon creates a rigorous, exquisite set of gestures that explore memory, perception, and the effects of current participatory media and technology on culture.
