Restless Productions, an OBIE and Bessie Award-winning theater company led by the director Mallory Catlett, presents the second installment of their multimedia-infused trilogy based on William Burroughs’ cult sci-fi NOVA series. The work uses the Burroughsian cut-up technique to create a unique blend of literature, live music, theatre, and technology. Developed by an all-star team of performers and designers, it is performed by actor Jim Findlay and sound artist G Lucas Crane. DECODER: Ticket That Exploded features noisey image meals and kaleidoscopic dreamscapes made from internet debris by video designer Keith Skretch, with interaction design by Ryan Holsopple.
The presentation is a part of a month-long company residency at Pioneer Works and will be accompanied by workshops lead by Crane and writer and Burroughs scholar Alex Wermer-Colan who devised dramaturgy for the piece.
