From The Right To Be Lazy. Ned Ludd was a fictitious leader. Costumes, jokes, and more. Here’s an excerpt:

“The Luddites, as they soon became known, were dead serious about their protests. … But they were also making fun, dispatching officious-sounding letters that began, ‘Whereas by the Charter’…and ended ‘Ned Lud’s Office, Sherwood Forest.’ Invoking the sly banditry of Nottinghamshire’s own Robin Hood suited their sense of social justice. The taunting, world-turned-upside-down character of their protests also led them to march in women’s clothes as ‘General Ludd’s wives.’

But definitely read the whole thing.

Sci-fi rarely finds its way into theatrical venues — how, after all, can CGI-deprived stage productions do justice to futuristic environments, weird science and hypertech wizardry? The new Wirehead play hopes to get around the quandary with a low-cost high concept.

The Wexner Center for the Arts and Performance Space 122 are co-producing my second project, Gin&”It”. The world premiere will be March '10 at Wexner followed by the NY premiere in May '10 at PS 122.

Currently, during a five-month residency at EYEBEAM Art & Technology Center, I’m developing the video score and project specific software that will run the technical elements of the piece. Beginning Oct. ’09, during a nine-week residency at 3LD Art & Technology Center, I will complete the integration of video installation and live performance.

ROPE, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1948 film, is the source material for this piece. Based on the Leopold and Loeb murder, the story is of two young men who murder a friend just for a thrill. They then host a dinner party for friends and family of the victim, serving the main course on the trunk that is hiding the corpse.
