Fugitive Time


Fugitive Time is a multidisciplinary performance that integrates performed objects and puppetry with live-feed video manipulations of found, constructed, and collaged elements to form an integrated live “film-performance”. Using Bunraku–inspired puppets, cutouts, shadow puppets, and video, Fugitive Time draws from the histories of Los Angeles city planning, early 20th Century TB medical practices, and patient narratives. Fugitive Time centers on landscape and the body as the locations of narrative, memory, erasure, history, and loss.   Co-Commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara and First Works (Providence).  A Project of Automata.  (Available for touring.)
