Isolated Acts, New Works 4 Weeks
Red Eye Theater
In their new evening-length work, performance duo Fire Drill takes the truism that "the internet is rewiring our brains" as both paranoia and reality. Novelty Shots: A Political Fantasy catapults the viewer between focus and distraction, capitalizing on our collective desire for constant stimulation. Using rigorous exploration of form, daring physicality, and an uncompromisingly contemporary aesthetic, Novelty Shots activates and interrogates the attention economy.
Novelty Shots was presented by the Red Eye Theater as part of Isolated Acts and the New Works 4 Weeks festival.
