About the Project

Half Life is a multidisciplinary performance piece inspired by blog postings of Japanese housewives who were directly affected by the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster; an elegy for an unsafe and nervous world. Two women literally and figuratively live on opposite sides of the world when an unknown cataclysmic force disrupts both of their lives, compelling them to each embark on their own journeys to locate its source. Building off of their unique style of hybrid performance, Cloud Eye Control will layer performers with projections in space, and will create imaginative and odd encounters between the virtual and the physical.
