Somewhere in Transition, Prelude to the Occupation

Thanks to Julia Lee Barclay-Morton for her blog post on love.abz @ Prelude.11:

“The other show that interested me was created by Otso Huopaniemi, a Finnish-American writer/director, in which he worked with 3 other performers, a laptop, Google Translate and voice recognition software.  This made the piece unpredictable, visible in its creation and showed the fragility of language, understanding and the strange persistence of our ongoing relationship with machines.  I can’t summarize the experience, but it was quite compelling to watch.  And it made everyone question the notion of authorship in an explicit way, which is always a good thing.  It is called love.abz so go see it when it’s completed.”
