LEARN THE SECRETS OF GROUP SCI-FI EVENT / BOOK / VIDEO / IMPROVISATORY PRODUCTION!

Join video & performance artists Torsten Zenas Burns & Darrin Martin for a two-day workshop culminating in an omnibus collaborative print-on-demand book, video work and public screening! Inspired by Burns & Martin’s exhibitions at DAC: WHAT-IF? & DEMOFORMANCES, participants will spend a Saturday afternoon collaboratively producing a set, improvising characters and scenes, shooting video and taking digital pictures of the preceding events, chaos and all! Various speculative themes including Cos-play role playing, Post-Human fictions, Re-imagined body, and Humor!

On Sunday, the group will reunite to share their recorded media and work with Burns & Martin to create images for their own pages in the book! Finally, at a date to be set, the group will convene yet again for a public screening of their individually produced works at Dumbo Arts Center and an on-line video channel!
