Live Stage: Magic Acts [us Brooklyn]

eng.jpgMagic Acts — Live Video Music Performance with Angie Eng (Video/concept), Okkyung Lee and Satoshi Takeishi (music) :: May 28, 2009; 8:00 pm :: Issue Project Room (Old American Can Factory), 232 3rd Street, Brooklyn.

Magic Acts is about fear and liminal states. Uses monsters from classic horror films from the 20’s to the 60’s including Dr. Caligari, Carnival of Souls, Atom Age Vampire and Daughter of Horror. The excerpts are sped up 500X and mixed with the artist’s animated drawings of portraits of fear. Liminal is about being in between. Small objects on a light table are manipulated with archival footage on themes of waiting or transition and mixed in real time.

This performance was funded in part by Experimental TV center presentation funds which is partially funded by the New York State Council on the Arts.
