CULTUREMART 2015: Psychic Driving Nick Brooke

Funding

Additional support provided by Bennington College.

About the show

Psychic Driving surrounds the audiences with a hallucinatory landscape of audio surveillance, hospital sonification, and clandestine broadcasts, based on the CIA brainwashing experiments of the 1950s, in which subjects were force-fed LSD then played looped audiotapes. Four performers chatter, yodel, and nosedive from desks, in an intricate physical and musical score that seamlessly combines musical samples with live performers. Brooke’s trademark physical mash-ups have been called “operatic in scope, unfolding in layers that constantly reveal new meanings” (Culturebot) and the “most exciting and innovative music theater I’ve seen in years” (Meredith Monk).
