"Stop the Press!"

Friday, February 26, 2010 to Sunday, March 7, 2010
Experimental Theater

An audience-interactive production about the demise of print and the rise of digital media.

"Stop the Press!" delves into past dreams of the future, taking us from antiquated Disney animatronics through the triumph of the digital age. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, inventor Ray Kurzweil, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and the writer of Java, Bill Joy, meet with cyborgian emcees, fortune tellers, and dancers in this interactive living installation.

New music, 3D animation, video installations, and motion capture combine with live performers in this fantasia on the way we navigate our brave new world. Directed by Kimberly Jannarone. A co-production of the Theater Arts Department and Digital Arts and New Media MFA program.
