Staged Readings of New Work by New Paradise Laboratories in collaboration with The Riot Group


The first reading, FREEDOM CLUB, performed by New Paradise Laboratories and The Riot Group, is a theatrical hallucination on national themes, where past and future collide.  FREEDOM CLUB moves from a schizophrenic dream-play involving Abraham Lincoln and assassin John Wilkes Booth to Virginia, 2012, where a dwindling activist theater company tries to get more radical. FREEDOM CLUB will be presented in rough draft form as a full-tech, staged reading.


F@#K Computers

The second reading, F@#K COMPUTERS, is an excerpt of a work in progress created with Princeton Atelier students combining original music, video and live performance that raises questions about whether this production is a strange terrorist action in a future war; a lecture-demonstration of android technology; a robot slave sale; or a pitch for a new movie. F@#K COMPUTERS will eventually find form as a performance of New Paradise Laboratories and The Riot Group.
