The (Fabled) Life and (Imaginary) Death of Eric F. Avery
Part of the Inside/Out Festival
September 24, 2016
The (Fabled) Life and (Imaginary) Death of Eric F. Avery was an interactive performance that projected an entire audience into the future. Their guide on this journey was the fictional, or maybe not-so-fictional, creator of the performance, Eric F. Avery, who did his best to navigate the changing landscape in an unsure world. From celebrating at his wedding, to creating a new civilization, to witnessing his death(s) audiences experienced and shared in the rituals, milestones, and moments that connect us.
