Crunch Time runs over 2.5 hours. Instead of a full archival recording, the following video walks through the performance from a range of angles. But that means letting you in on all the secrets and spoiling some of our best surprises. If you are able to see the work in person, or talk to Counterpilot / Metro Arts, do that!
Archival video of Truthmachine is available on request.
ADRIFT explores themes of human loneliness, isolation, and our fraught relationship with nature in the face of a potential mass extinction event. Using a narrative structure that resembles platonic speed dating, strangers are guided to collaborate in order to uncover a series of true stories.
Set in an ambiguous global flood, our participants find themselves isolated and adrift. Wandering a dark space with headphones, participants follow instructions in a dynamic sound design, leading them to find each other across tabletop miniatures. Together they co-create detailed worlds by manipulating objects and filling in blanks in each others’ narratives.
ADRIFT explores our real feelings of loneliness in the context of disconnected communities and the threat of irreparable climate change. We feel alone in a world that crumbles beneath us. Our relationship with nature is just as fraught as our relationships with each other.
