Note: This event will take place at the Arts Club of Chicago in Chicago, Il.

In The Alices, Claudia Hart has spun a short excerpt of Lewis Carroll's original Alice in Wonderland, to create a text that slowly devolves as it is repetitively cloned. After six variations, the excerpt comes to mean its opposite - a succinct demonstration of the perversion of truth that occurs when things “go viral” on our public media.

Edmund Campion, co-director of the Center for New Music and Technology at U.C. Berkeley, has composed a special score for the Hart’s spun Alices. Campion will perform his work on the Arts’ Club Steinway along with live vocalizations by Mikey McParlane, countertenor and contemporary performance artist, using custom feedback audio-software designed by Campion. The music will be accompanied by a living “performance sculpture” featuring six cloned Alices consuming what is here actually a delightfully perverse menu designed for the event by Michele Thursz. To be consumed on Nue Morte augmented reality dishes....
