The Summit
By Isla Hansen, Tucker Marder and Christian Scheider

Join us for the world premiere of The Summit, an experimental performance by three artists who are interested in the way that technology is shaping human consciousness.

As the global elite prepare to abandon their bodies and upload themselves into the virtual beyond, a malfunctioning Empathy A.I. is mistakenly assigned to assist with the procedure, but instead unwittingly inspires a bodily-bacchanal for the ages.

Collaborators Scheider, Marder and Hansen have produced a wide range of projects, including a puppet-actualized microbiology conference, a documentary about a modern-day Tree Prophet, and Galápagos — the groundbreaking theatrical adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s novel which premiered at the Parrish Art Museum in 2014. Their work explores themes surrounding technological progress, our relationship to the environment, and humanity gone awry. Theirs is truly an original collaboration that breaks with convention in playful and innovative ways.

Tickets from $20/$18 GH Members - $75/$70 GH Members
