FULL DESCRIPTION: “Working with trained cross-disciplinary performers, Clusterflock Ritual is the first public performance of the project, Laptop Performance Laboratory/Modular Play. This project explores community, isolation, and the yearning for connection in a decentered posthuman world. Each of the collaborators from Canada, Latvia, Australia, Idaho, Florida, and Georgia have developed modules of performance that they may perform separately or in conjunction with one or more of their collaborators in real or virtual space. Different iterations of the work may be performed as collaborators are able to travel to different performance sites. This expands upon previous Callous Physical Theatre explorations of internet-based collaborative performance that culminated in simultaneous multi-sited performance to produce multi-modal, multi-sited performance unrestrained by time. Thus the performance structure will echo the creative process and provide much more opportunity to disseminate the research through performance in various sites and configurations.”

MORE INFO: “We, Joséphine A. Garibaldi and Paul Zmolek, have been creative and life partners for nearly three decades. We produce work internationally and nationally as Callous Physical Theatre. Clusterflock Ritual ¬is a production of Laptop Performance Laboratory, a project of Callous Physical Theatre that is composed of collaborators from Australia, Latvia, Canada, Idaho, Georgia and Florida.”
