Remote Control Tomato (Thomas Bell and Christina deRoos) will perform Saturday 7/28 from 3pm - 7pm at Secret Project Robot (Brooklyn, NY) as part of the You Are Here Festival (aka The Maze)). Six projectors!!!
The ‘You Are Here’ festival, takes place in New York City approximately once every two years. The festival consists of 4 weeks of performance and time- based arts events in a life size maze installation.
Trouble, Sam Hillmer and Laura Paris – the art duo responsible for ‘You Are Here’ - designs and builds an actual maze into a gallery space accompanied by light, projections, sound, sculpture, and of course, a myriad of performance and time-based arts events.
The ‘You Are Here’ festival interrupts the performance rituals of the arts communities it inhabits. Artists who present are, primarily, members of these communities. Audience members arrive at ‘You Are Here’ with the intention of catching a particular presentation, but intentions are frustrated and transformed by the labyrinthine construction the festival provides. Artists and audiences alike are invited to question the expectations that arise around performance in the context of community.
Performers this year include Laurel Halo, Miho Hatori's New Optimisim, Ann Liv Young, Dustin Wong, Hunter Hunt Hendrix, Noveller, Mick Barr, Jack Quartet, Lucky Dragons, JG Thirlwell, Babycastles, Extralife, and many others...
