Organized by Brody Condon, Case was a 6 hour deadpan reading of the classic cyberpunk novel Neuromancer by William Gibson in a rehearsal-like atmosphere. Combining Gibson's 1980s dystopian techno-fetishism with early twentieth-century abstraction, faux "virtual reality" scenes unfolded via moving Bauhaus-inspired sculptural props accompanied by the Gamelan ensemble Dharma Swara.
Case premiered at the New Museum in New York on November 22nd, 2009. The actors for the November 22nd performance include Ray Radtke, Sasha Grey, Lionel Maunz, Sto, Tony Conrad, Sindri Eldon, Peter Segerstrom, Melissa Baxter, Rachid Outabia, Emily Mahoney, Brandon Stosuy, Jee Young Sim, Guil R. Mullen, Brody Condon, and Mallory Blair. The script was prepared by the writer Brandon Stosuy, with sound design by Peter Segerstrom, and printmaking by Breanne Trammell. The event was commissioned and presented by Rhizome and Performa 09.
