Created by Sharang Biswas, Pierre Depaz, Adam Jackrel and Amelia Winger-Bearskin, Treason is an espionage-themed, multimedia, interactive theatrical experience, featuring elements of improvisational performance and role-playing games. It uses a cooperative game-like structure: by working together as a group with an unseen agent, players uncover a narrative that explores themes of cyber-security and surveillance.

H.A.U.T.E. was part of Wearable Tech Event Fall 2013 at Huge in DUMBO. From the event press: “Google Glass has revolutionized the way people make fun of wearable tech. But being-ripe-for-parody aside, there is no doubt that wearable tech is here to stay. Many of us have thought about purchasing …

Touching the Voice

a vocal instrument using the LeapMotion   Created with Processing (LeapMotion Library for Processing, Minim and OSC5 to Max/MSP )   Touching the Voice is an instrument for the voice. It makes visible expressions of the human instrument with intimate hand gestures. I use the LEAP as a voice control tool for live performance rather than the Kinect because of the ability for quiet movements to articulate the intimate voice (the microphone voice). I would like the gestures that a vocal performance has naturally those small articulations of the hands that are used in vocal performance to help the singer …

Look Like You Have Been in a Fight Cabaret

I went to a local High School in Beijing the ISP International School Of Beijing and collected childhood fight stories from 3 of the classes. These stories were used in the karaoke cabaret, and myself and fellow performer Xixi Chen, wore fight makeup during the performance. We then taught the audience how to apply the fight makeup and then we all looked like we’d been in a fight. This was performed for the 10th Annual Open Art Performance Art Festival in Beijing, China in the 798 District
