[re: CLICK] is presented under special arrangement with Jacqueline Goldfinger
“I love that we’ll be the only generation with click envy,
As swipes and soundless keypads swallow the voice of the next generation.
They will be raised to
Whisper whisk
Whisper whisk
Whisper whisk
And I guess that the next generation after that will be raised in silence.”
-Jacqueline Goldfinger

 

“Welcome to the platform–part time capsule, part art installation, part speculative fiction [re: CLICK] is an experiment in form and collaboration. During this era of raised global consciousness, we complicate the temporal and spatial stability of traditional ensemble. Our process transposes embodied explorations of Goldfinger’s text into an app-based immersive experience. Thespis steps back into the chorus as each contributing artist amplifies each other’s voices through their contributions to the work. What happens when we de-center the singular perspective and challenge the notion of ‘universality’ in the age of the algorithm?” – Roger Ellis

“Our creative inquiry was led by curiosity about ‘what is my body in the internet’. We kept questioning the impact of the anonymous, weaponized, and often false voice of the digital chorus. Our cast(s) of digital natives is the first generation for whom the digital experience is more real than the ‘flesh-based experience’. Our decision to present this material within the digital space invites the audience to experience this dichotomy.” 

– Margaret Laurena Kemp
