Featuring archival wiretapped transcriptions, the missives of Communist spies, X-rays, and MRI brain scans, The Institute of Memory conjures a portrait of Lars Jan’s enigmatic father, a Cold War operative whose fascinating story prompts questions about privacy, memory, and fatherhood. The piece is both disturbingly abstract and uniquely personal, for instance involving laser scans of several actual environments where Jan spent time with his father as a child. It follows two men who play with the past in the glow of a kinetic light sculpture signaling keystrokes from a hacked 1950s typewriter. Jan directs Early Morning Opera, a performance and art lab integrating emerging technologies, live audiences, and unclassifiable experience.
Please note: There will be no late seating for this performance.
