Helen Wicks Works


You're invited:

Helen Wicks Works and Z Space present
 Saturn Landing
 a new work in celebration of Z Space’s 30th year.
The aerial dance will be performed by Helen Wicks on the facade of Z Space
 (formerly Theater Artaud)
November 17, 6:30 and 7:00 pm


Saturn Landing creates a vertical timeline through performance and entertainment technology that uses historic sound and aerial acrobatics. The work questions how ongoing innovations in technology are reflected in live performance, culture, and community building. Come witness from the sidewalk outside 450 Florida St to celebrate Z Space's Saturn Return and 30th birthday benefit. 

In 1933 Antonin Artaud wrote The Theater and the Plague. That same year sound and moving image technology put live Vaudeville performers out of business and spectators moved to the screen. The musical score, created by renowned composer Simon Linsteadt, combines music Wicks’ great-grandfather produced in 1933 for Talkies and original music videos known as “Soundies,” excerpts from Artaud’s 1933 writing, and more.
Linsteadt will accompany live.
Rigging by Dave Freitag. 

Come join the journey from morse code to novel radio waves and into AI as we come together to orient ourselves in this historic moment on earth.
