Summer News 2018

This is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast System, Premiere
Yuliya Lanina's new one woman multimedia performance and art show featuring animatronic sculpture, projections, drawing, music, and movement.

Painting, interactive sculpture, animation, and performance: Yuliya Lanina
Original music: Vladimir Rannev
Technical development of mechanical sculptures: Theodore Johnson
Choreography consultation: Andrea Ariel
Poems: Lisa Olstein and Cecily Parks

In This is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast System, an artist disguised in a bird-like costume guides viewers through an immersive installation consisting of video projection, diary sketches, and interactive mechanical dolls. The piece is meant to explore the mechanized nature of human life and a state of perpetual unrest, all the while poking fun at our fascination with the dark and animalistic parts of the human psyche. The show borrows its title from a poem by Lisa Olstein.

Opening Reception: June 21st, 6-8pm. Performance at 8:00 pm. FREE
Closing Reception: June 29th, 7-9 pm. Performance at 7:30 pm. FREE. Special guests: Anya and Katya
