BAM presents the New York premiere of
The Builders Association's Continuous City, directed by Marianne Weems as part of 2008 Next Wave Festival.
A father and daughter struggle to communicate
across continents -- and maintain sanity -- in this new multimedia theater work.
Continuous City moves through a vast cityscape made up of fragments from many different locales -- some real, some virtual, some distant, and some drawn from the very city in which each performance is staged. In addition to video shot on location in Shanghai, Tijuana, Toronto, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, the work includes site-specific filming unique to each performance venue simultaneously creating a local and global presentation.
