TRANSMISSION is an immersive, participatory sermon on the viral evolution of culture from the radio age to the present. In act one, you’re invited into an intimate atmosphere — think 1930s armchairs and the warmth of a vintage radio — for a sonic mashup of 20th century history and 21st century dangers that’s part jazz, part science lecture, and part ritual invocation. In act two, you’ll discuss what it means to be inundated with narratives in our always-connected, always-sharing culture and explore the desperate need for skepticism and inquiry in a landscape of spin, lies, and out-of-control memes. It’s an antidote for the excesses of the 21st century.
