Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick's latest project concerns a fictitious cabaret troupe\, the Truppe Fledermaus \, who travel the countryside staging absurd and inscrutable performances i n the abandoned landscapes beyond the town's edge. To create this 'Theater of Memory'\, the Truppe are as apt to commemorate the passing of an unusual cloud as they are to be found documenting their own attempts to flee the r ising waters of a warming planet\, or using black humor to comment upon mas s extinction. In addition to using this concept to address ecological theme s\, Kahn &\; Selesnick also use it as a metaphor for the manner in which seemingly inexhaustible quantities of information are disseminated to us i n the modern world.
