A multimedia installation for Silo City designed by Torn Space Theater.
Torn Space Theater returns to the scenic setting of Buffalo’s Silo City, this year exploring a whole new section of the industrial complex. Collaborating with local and international artists, technicians, and performers, STATIONS will swathe audiences in sound, light, and projection design to create a visceral and otherworldly experience.
The piece will feature a partnership with Berlin-based lighting designer Olivier Pasquet, an internationally active lighting, sound and projection-mapping artist whose work has appeared at the Centre Pompidou, Hong Kong HSBC Center, and the Theatre National de Reims. Torn Space continues to bring in top contemporary artists from around the world to collaborate and share their work with the Western New York audience.
STATIONS will also feature work by NYC-based sound designer Avi Amon, and gong percussionist Liz Holland, among other Buffalo-based artists, including Brian Milbrand, Kristina Siegel, Justin Rowland and Frank Napolski, among others.
The pre-show VIP experience for STATIONS will feature a serene boat ride on the canal surrounding the scenic grain silos, accompanied by an original soundtrack composed by Torn Space sound designers. This unique perspective of the historic industrial site will provide a fitting prelude to the night’s meditative performance with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception.
The show is performed over two weekends: 10-12 of August 2018 and 17-19 August 2018.
Doors are at 7.30pm with the performance starting at 8pm. The VIP experience begins at 7.30pm.
