Firebrand US performance group Object Collection’s utopian space-opera is a “homing signal” cast into an empty universe, a beacon for an aesthetically advanced and politically progressive future. It draws from space travel, transhumanism, astronautics and the resurrection of the dead to boldly re-envision our daily lives at a time when the earth is depleted of all natural resources to sustain life. Charged with a burning, engrossing physicality, this is a life-giving work, deep in the mess of futuristic fervor. “Perhaps the truest heirs to Richard Foreman’s Ontological-Hysteric Theater” (Frieze magazine); “It’s shows like this that shut down the NEA” (Backstage).
