In presenting the Untitled Peter Tripp Project, Johanna Bundon, Jayden Pfeifer, and Lee Henderson of Curtain Razors find rich territory in the metaphor of the radio broadcast — the host sends performative energy into literal thin air, not knowing whether it is being received by listeners.
Peter Tripp, a once-celebrated radio DJ, performed a publicity stunt in 1959 wherein he broadcast continuously, for 201 hours, from a glass booth in Times Square. This act was his undoing — he suffered psychological complications from prolonged sleep deprivation, and his increased fame made him a target for investigators who would indict him on commercial bribery charges in the “payola” scandal of 1960.
Experience this new performance work created by Bundon, Henderson and Pfeifer. Audiences can expect to experience sound, movement, projection, and image in an expansive, haunting and immersive space.
