Future Perfect

Saturday, April 13th, 2019 - 8:00 pm

On Saturday April 13, join MATA on an intrepid journey from our present to the post-human future with Future Perfect.  The Friends of MATA are joined by pianist Conrad Tao, performing Remy Siu’s Foxconn Frequency no. 2, a multimedia theater work that questions perfection, pedagogy, and factory culture, and – wrapped in aluminum foil – vocalist Paul Pinto, in works that make the future come alive in all of its sensory overload. The conclusion of MATA’s Festival mainstage events at the Kitchen, Future Perfect visits a world of androids, bots and zombies where yesterday’s science fiction is tomorrow’s reality.
