Radiohole: Inflatable Frankenstein
Friday, March 22
Inspired by meditations on horror films, the work of Antonin Artaud, and Ardunio open-source electronics, Radiohole’s Inflatable Frankenstein is a visually and sonically driven performance based on Mary Shelley’s early life and her novel Frankenstein.
Arising from a world of gods and monsters (and thousands of Walmart and Price Chopper grocery bags) is a desecration too terrible to behold and too beautiful to turn away from, leading to an improbable question: what is it like to be a metaphor for everything?
The project was supported by EMPAC’s 2012 production residency.
Radiohole is a Brooklyn-based performance collective founded in 1998 by Erin Douglass, Eric Dyer, Maggie Hoffman, and Scott Halvorsen Gillette. The group received the 2009 Spalding Gray Award in recognition of their achievements.
The performace begins at 8 p.m. in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) Studio 1–Goodman. Admission is $6 for Rensselaer students; $13 non-Rensselaer students, seniors, and Rensselaer faculty and staff; $18 general admission.
