TITLE 66 PRODUCTIONS presents a multimedia theatre event –

Nuclear Sky: The Experiment

Directed by Jeremy Michael Segal and Logan Williams

“Why are we so attracted to the things that destroy us? We simultaneously laugh and cry.
We glimpse the orbit of the sky from the bottom of a dark well.”

Nuclear Sky: The Experiment is a stylized piece exploring the dehumanizing consequences of contemporary society, war and technology. Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children is used as a starting point for exploring themes of loss, nuclear devastation, the impact of social media and humanity’s disconnection from the natural world. Here, Title 66 Productions investigates the paradoxical isolation that has taken hold of society… Is technology irreconcilable with human connection? Is violence a natural impulse or is contemporary war fuelled by this breakdown of communication? Nuclear Sky: The Experiment brings you nine performers, projections, live sound manipulation, live music and interactive technologies by designers from Concordia’s Hexagram research centre for Art and Technology. Contains nudity.

Multidisciplinary performers are: Gitanjali Jain, Geneviève Bolla, Adam Capriolo, Béata Groves, Natalie Liconti, Adrian Manicom, Arielle Palik, Patrick Rogers and Ilana Zackon.

Spanning multiple fields, talented designers are: Cédric Delorme-Bouchard, lighting; Kenny Lefebvre, video; Clara Congdon, costumes; and Roze Bell, props, along with designers from the Hexagram-Concordia Centre: Lenka Novakova, scenic environment; Joseph Browne, sound; Omar Faleh and Nikolaos Chandolias, projection mapping.
