Nearing the Valley

It's hard to believe that we are less than two weeks away from opening the beast still known as Uncanny Valley. We've come a long way since August 2009 when we were dreaming up what this new, then, untitled show would be. Here are a few notes from the archives:

Wilder, bigger
Performance in a public pool
Sexing the Cherry
Space Opera / sci-fi material inspired / science dark matter
- a big cheesy over the top thing
Stephen Hawking writes our show
- using a real scientist
The structure of Sci-Fi
- archetypal series of actions mashed up
- six texts become the one text
Conjunction of Opera & Sci-Fi
Extant text sources
Horror aspect of scary thing
Back to the land movement
Escapism / Celebrity obsession
Michael Jackson / Sci Fi / Pregos
Rags to Riches

Ensemble created show that mashes up several text sources: fantastical scientific to create a bracing mythical story that has surprise guests appearing on-stage.

...this show mashes the realities and nightmares of earth including science including outerspace, michael jackson and pregrancy and anxiety.

...anxiety of darkness, of the darkness of space.

Show about duality of escapism through seeking a return to earth and a return to the stars.

H2M show explores the emerging and historical enxiety about satisfaction, excess and escaping engaging a promient scientist and fantasy writer to collaborate on a script and will also be site specific

Multi media extravaganza explores the anxieties of the modern age through travels into the outer unexplored regions of space and travels inward to the body as we try to give birth to a new way of thinking that will really just be the same thing over and over again.

I am still interested in the version of Uncanny Valley that features 50 Michael Jackson impersonators in a public pool, but until then, this one is pretty exciting. See you May 12 - 22.
