EMPAC Presents “Ballard”
Saturday, September 7
After three weeks in residence, Belgian theater maker and visual artist Kris Verdonck invites the audience to an open studio and lecture demonstration of his innovative stereoscopic (3-D) filming techniques developed with the EMPAC team. The presentation will provide insight into the microcosmic sets built on the theater stage and the development process.
BALLARD inhabits the world and characters from the apocalyptic science-fiction novels of J.G. Ballard, whose visionary descriptions of a future world resemble today’s neoliberal society more and more.
Verdonck’s creations are situated in the transit zone between visual arts and theater, installation and performance, and dance and architecture.
The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) Theater. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended. Contact the box office at 276-3921.
