Mallory Catlett's DECODER 2017 @ Gibney Dance


  • Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center 280 Broadway New York, NY, 10007 United States (map)

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.

Wednesday—Saturday at 7:30 PM
Studio C at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center
