A meditation on the AIDS epidemic as cultural phenomenon, Generator: Pestilence Part 1 is about how a virus can infect and affect us all. A cycle of beginnings and endings, expressionistic and experimental. The narrative begins with a spark of energy triggering life on our planet in a collectively generated intervention where art, social practice, and technology are activated as a living, breathing Venn diagram with performance, moving image, light, sound, choreography, immersive interactive media and even fragrance.

This is the first of a three-part cycle in collaboration with John Michael Swartz and Mike Cacciatore of the queer skinned “kitchen band” NYOBS, and the nearly 40-year partnership of Jack Waters and Peter Cramer. Known for their challenging and innovative interventions in art and politics, Generator is a homecoming - a return to Cramer and Waters’ theatrical roots at La MaMa where their early performance works premiered in 1987.
