Four years after the first performances of the piece, the first members of the love.abz team meet again in New York to re-visit and re-work the performance. Part of the Performance, Technology, Translation event at Barnard College, love.abz @ Barnard fuses the original New York performance concept with its subsequent European offspring.
love.abz @ Barnard re-stages the tensions between languages, cultures, and concepts of theater and technology that have been present throughout this remarkable process, a process that began with the serendipitous click of the blue TRANSLATE icon.
