Transmission is an immersive, participatory “performance essay” on the viral evolution of culture from the radio age to the present. Devised for an intentionally-small audience of twenty people, all seated in 1930s armchairs clustered around period radios, the performance is a sonic mashup of 20th century history and 21st century dangers that’s part jazz, part science lecture, and part ritual invocation. Together, performer and audience will investigate what it means to be inundated with an over-abundance of narratives in our always-connected, always-sharing culture and explore the desperate need for skepticism and inquiry in a landscape of spin, lies, and out-of-control memes.
