Jun 22 9pm

East River Esplanade, Pier 15
Film/Mixed Media, Theatre
Presented by LMCC as part of the Laurie Anderson curated track in partnership with Rooftop Films
Warning: strobe lights and loud noises.

Set adrift in the palindromic live multimedia performance. After the sun sets to the west, the East River becomes the backdrop and the stage for this highly physical and technological live-art experiment in time travel. Cameras, projectors, microphones, and underwater camera housings turn the viewer’s perception of time backwards in a city that is uncompromisingly charging forward.
