In Screen Test, rock show collides with video installation. Conceived and directed by Rob Roth with Theo Kogan and her band "Theo and the Skyscrapers," the performance blends haunting romantic imagery and modern apocalyptic paranoia with the gritty sensibility of underground NYC.
Theo and the Skyscrapers premiere a slew of original songs written specifically for this show. The music flows from melodic to assaulting while lyrically echoing themes of loneliness and longing, playing out on a 1940s Hollywood soundstage. Anger and humor combine to ask: What is artificial? What is real? and What role does fantasy play in survival?
