Stations - Response Festival
Friday 10th Aug, 2018 → Sunday 19th Aug, 2018
Silo City120 Childs Street, Buffalo, NY 14203
Torn Space Theater returns to the scenic setting of Buffalo’s Silo City, this year exploring a whole new section of the industrial complex. Collaborating with local and international artists, technicians, and performers, STATIONS will swathe audiences in sound, light, and projection design to create a visceral and otherworldly experience.
The piece will feature a collaboration with Berlin-based lighting designer Olivier Pasquet, an internationally active lighting, sound and projection-mapping artist whose work has appeared at the Centre Pompidou, Hong Kong HSBC Center, and the Theatre National de Reims. More information about Olivier Pasquet and his ongoing work can be found at his website: https://www.opasquet.fr/. Torn Space continues to bring in top contemporary artists from around the world to collaborate and share their work with the Western New York audience. STATIONS will also feature work by NYC-based sound designer Avi Amon, and gong percussionist Liz Holland, among others.
The pre-show VIP experience for STATIONS will feature a serene boat ride on the canal surrounding the scenic grain silos, accompanied by an original soundtrack composed by Torn Space sound designers. This unique perspective of the historic industrial site will provide a fitting prelude to the night’s meditative performance with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception.
