November 30 – December 3, 2011, at 7:30 pm
A CIA operative, pilot of an unmanned aerial vehicle, a drone, bombs targets in South Asia while struggling to be a good father and a husband. Video, mime, shadow puppetry, dance, and acrobatics combine in a pageant of stunning images set to original pop music fashioned after today’s top-40 hits. Should we all just tune in and engage our inner Autopilot? Performed by Ephraim Eusebio, Lily Eusebio, Angelique Lele, Rabiya Sehgal-Larocque, Andrea Grey, Nathan Brende, Chrys Laramy. Directed by Masanari Kawahara.
