Island Fellow Mark Macey’s performance research group, Suckerpunch (www.suckerpunchforever.com) is excited to present The Breach, a multichannel audio-visual performance. The piece written by Alex Coltrin explores themes of technology, ecology, and civics as we follow our narrator from dream to reality and, finally, to madness.
“Alex wrote the script then we all responded to it with video performances. It worked a lot like Life in Washington County actually,” said Macey.
Coltrin says the group is no stranger to being far afield. “Suckerpunch has been working remotely for a little over a year now, sending and sharing our work to each other in a very collaborative effort, but The Breach added the extra challenge and experience of a totally prerecorded production.”
Long-time collaborator, Kali Scott, added that this distance “lent to some interesting shape-shifting and discovery.”
The Breach runs just under 15 minutes. Audiences should be advised that the piece deals with difficult themes.
