Control your surveillance

You are invited to tend to the fragile equilibrium of life in an era of environmental emergency and mass extinction. Collaborate with the artists to operate robots and create sounds live, on stage, as we explore the intersection of surveillance, machines, and our sentient selves.

Plant the wood for your coffin or a tree that remembers the touch of your hands when all human life is gone.

7pm: Reception
7:30pm: Participatory Performance

Come early to sign up to be a part of the experience.

Ronja Ver: Movement and voice
Kal Spelletich: Robots and sound

About the Artists

Ronja Ver is a dancer, dance maker, teacher, mother, and activist. A perpetual student of performance as a way of participating in community and a tool for social change, they are deeply inspired by physical, social and mass movement, and its capacity to create meaningful impact on a personal and global scale. Ver holds an MFA in dance from Hollins University and is proud to be spinning underwater in Steve Paxton’s DVD Material For The Spine.

For almost 4 decades Kal Spelletich has built interactive machines and robots. Spelletich’s work enacts a liberated awareness and pushes his audience toward creative responses to technology in their lives. His work explores the interface of humans and science to put people in touch with philosophical interactive experiences.
