Cloud Eye Control: Half Life

Cloud Eye Control: Half Life

“Transcendently spectacular theater.” – Los Angeles Times

"A multidimensional, seductively cinematic experience." –LAist

World Premiere

A highly visual and emotional experience of fierce urgency, the latest multimedia production from Cloud Eye Control is an imagistic, visceral work inspired by the nervous fear felt in the wake of natural or man-made disasters. The starting point for the creation of Half Life was blog entries by women who experienced the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis, inspiring the artists to explore the psychological fallout of global disaster, and how it affects our emotions and imaginations. The Los Angeles-based collaborators— Miwa Matreyek, Anna Oxygen, and Chi-wang Yang —bring their signature mix of projected animation, live performance and music to summon the unseeable forces that govern our collective sense of personal safety and control.

Half Life is funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Theater Project with lead funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the LEF Foundation; and The MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital, primarily supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Half Life is produced with Los Angeles Performance Practice, and was made possible in part by creative residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, CalArts Center for New Performance, and Duke University.
