A self-generated and ‘automatic’ performance, Autoteatro, for two at a time experienced in the reading room of a library, audience members sit side-by-side taking cues from words both written and whispered – via an iPod and headphones – and find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. Available in English and Spanish. New York premiere supported by the British Council. Duration: 55 minutes – 1 hour Cue China (Elsewhere, Offshore) - Ant Hampton - May 1 – 5 - NYU Bobst Library | 70 Washington Square S | NYC - Reservations recommended - visit ps122.org - Co-presented by Performance Space 122 and PEN World Voices Festival - An Autoteatro experience for two, Cue China (Elsewhere, Offshore) asks the pair to face each other through a glass teleprompter, which reveals a video conversation between creator Ant Hampton and a recently injured factory worker from China. This real footage is nestled within a curious fiction: over time the audience’s identities begin to literally merge with someone too often perceived as voiceless, ‘faceless’ and conveniently distant.
