Inflatable Deities (Jessica Mensch & Emily Pelstring) will perform Mourning of the Living Past – a 25min. multimedia piece that includes a live soundtrack, dance numbers, costume changes and analog special effects.
Synopsis: It is the year 4999. Two Scientists have been sent through time and space to the year 5999 to gather research data on the evolution of a brain-eating virus. They discover that the virus has evolved to take on an anthropomorphic form. This manifestation of the Virus has integrated itself into the economic system, in which flesh functions as the new currency. The Scientists follow the virus and discover how Flesh is collected and traded. They report on their mission through a machine that translates their speech into image.
