Description
The Institute of Memory conjures a portrait of Lars Jan’s enigmatic father, prompting questions about privacy, memory, and fatherhood.

Featuring archival wire-tap transcriptions, the missives of communist spies, and MRI brain scans, The Institute of Memory (TIMe) conjures a portrait of Lars Jan’s enigmatic father — a Cold War operative whose fascinating story prompts questions about privacy, memory, and fatherhood. Jan directs Early Morning Opera, a performance and art lab integrating emerging technologies, live audiences, and unclassifiable experience. TIMe follows two men who play with the past in the glow of a kinetic light sculpture signaling keystrokes from a hacked 50s typewriter. Composed of medical scans, X-rays, and laser scans of several actual environments where Jan spent time with his father as a child, the piece is both disturbingly abstract and uniquely personal.

Please note: There will be no late seating for this performance.
