Theater artist Mallory Catlett’s Decoder 2017 uses the prophetic writing of William Burroughs as the basis for a performance installation. The work sets out to test his theory that “when you cut up the present the future leaks in.” Performer Jim FIndlay and analog tape DJ & noise artist G Lucas Crane use live sound and text cut-ups to generate a simultaneous visual reality. Acting both as characters within a fictional world and real-life systems operators, they create the work live in performance. This work is part of a diptych of new performance installations called M/F Future to premiere in 2016/17.
Decoder 2017 was created with commissioning support from Gibney Dance. Theatre Conspiracy (Vancouver) has also commissioned a presentation of Decoder 2017 at Club PuSh as part of the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival in February 2016.
