INVISIBLE MESSAGES

INVISIBLE MESSAGES

“Director Peter S. Petralia is a master at creating atmosphere . . . Keep an eye out for this adventurous group. . .”
– Jason Zinoman, Time Out New York

In September of 2005, Peter S. Petralia conducted an adventurous journey-cum-experiment in which he set out on the Trans-Siberian Railway, connecting with artists from around the world for as long as the train was in the station. He collected a constellation of collaborative art objects, experiences and stories which culminate in this unique performance.

The ephemeral nature of perception, mobility and fame are teased out by three people who are in the process of disappearing. Invisible Messages travels from the depths of the brain to the most remote corner of the Gobi desert in search of an understanding of what it means to be truly present in the modern world.

Performers: Mandy Caughey, Alessandro Magania, Meredith Smart
Music: Max Giteck Duykers
Lighting: Rebecca M. K. Makus
Stage Management: Ashley Kosier
Dramaturgy: Glenn Kessler
