    81 wirelessly controlled LED balloons create a floating pixel forest, an outdoor canopy of balloons. The installation is voice activated live by Leah Siegel of Leisure Cruise -- her beautiful voice echoing like a choir of angels. Dressed in white, she walks through the forest painting the balloons with her voice. Wind patterns reveal as the balloons shift simultaneously like a school of fish, a flock of birds, or cattails blowing in the wind. As the wind settles the balloons rise again to reveal a strict grid of light, a pixelated video screen which showcases dynamic color patterns, gradients, and washes. Visitors are escorted into the forest and lay among the star like orbs of light. Location: Republic Square Park.

        Platonov, or the Disinherited adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the play by Chekhov January 8-24, 2014 at The Kitchen and simulcast Live as a feature film at BAM Rose Cinema in Brooklyn (Thursday nights), and AMC Empire 25 in Times Square (Wednesday nights). "The Disinherited," after the fragment Platonov by Anton Chekhov, is a new live cinema performance adaptation of Chekhov’s first full-length play chronicling an emotionally bankrupt society of anti-heroes who are, less heroically, also losing their loves, their homes, and perhaps, their humanity as well. In an unprecedented experiment, the performance is realized simultaneously as live play (Platonov) and feature film, shot and edited in real time at The Kitchen in downtown New York City and simulcast to BAM Rose Cinemas. This physically daring and emotionally charged performance brings director Jay Scheib’s acclaimed vision to the Cinema for the first time.

              WORLD OF WIRES adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Screenplay by Rainer Werner Fassbinder based on the novel Simulacron-3 by Daniel F. Galouye. World Premiere: The Kitchen, January 2012 THE TEAM OF WORLD OF WIRES includes director/adapter Jay Scheib, performers Sarita Choudhury, Mikéah Ernest Jennings, Rosalie Lowe, Jon Morris, Ayesha Ngaujah, Laine Rettmer and Tanya Selvaratnam; scenic design by Sara Brown, costumes by Alba Clemente, sound design by Anouschka Trocker, lighting design by Josh Higgason, video by Jay Scheib and Josh Higgason, assistant director Laine Rettmer, and stage managed by Susan Wilson. This production is produced by Tanya Selvaratnam. PERFORMANCE HISTORY World of Wires was developed through a workshop with students at MIT followed by professional studio presentations with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the Prelude Festival in New York City (2011). Further presentations include the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (September 2012), Festival d’Automne Paris (Maison des Arts), Lieu Unique Nantes, and Le Manege, Maubeuge Mons, France (November 2012). ////////// His brand of theater always seems to be ahead of everybody else. Tom Murrin—PAPERMAG World of Wires opened with one of the most thrillingly witty displays of illusion I've ever seen on a stage or a screen – a genuine challenge to one's fixed notion of reality – and then barreled through another 90 minutes of riveting near anarchy. I'm hereby sending a brain transmission out to some Off Broadway/nonprofit Morpheus: Please, reboot this soon. –Scott Brown - New York Magazine Mr. Scheib pulls off several startling trompe-l’oeil effects. And its revved-up young ensemble exudes a real-life, in-the-moment, hormone-popping glow that no computer simulation has managed to replicate. Or as a character in “World of Wires” would surely add, “Not yet, anyway.” Ben Brantley — The New York Times

                Rock‘n is “like when the grade 9 stoners took over the talent show!” Their sound echoes the guitar driven 70’s with the stadium antics of the 80’s. People are caught off guard by their enthusiasm. They make “good-natured, loud, unpretentious fun.” Once the confusion passes there is no denying, “This could be the best night of your life!”

                    World of Wires adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Screenplay by Rainer Werner Fassbinder based on the novel Simulacron-3 by Daniel F. Galouye. Reeling from the reality of people living their lives inside of machines, World of Wires is Jay Scheib’s new adaptation of Welt am Draht, filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1973 science-fiction television series. The play is an all-bets-are-off homage to the startling possibility that you too might be ones and zeroes in someone else's immaculately programmed world. World of Wires is also inspired by the works of Oxford University Professor Nick Bostrom, including his compelling paper, "Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?" The team of World of Wires includes director/adapter Jay Scheib, performers Sarita Choudhury, Mikéah Ernest Jennings, Rosalie Lowe, Jon Morris, Ayesha Ngaujah, Laine Rettmer and Tanya Selvaratnam; scenic design by Sara Brown, costumes by Alba Clemente, sound design by Anouschka Trocker, lighting and video by Jay Scheib and Josh Higgason, and stage managed by Susan Wilson. Kasper Sejersen and Laine Rettmer are the Assistant Directors, and Tanya Selvaratnam is the Producer. On Thursday, January 12, Anne Bogart moderates a special Q&A with Jay Scheib following the performance. The Kitchen's presentation of World of Wires is made possible with support from The Greenwall Foundation and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency. Additional support provided by the Guggenheim Fellowship, Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, New York State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Theater Commissioning Program, The Greenwall Foundation, Südtiroler Künstlerförderung, and MIT Council for the Arts. World of Wires has been developed in residencies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, TEATRO LATEA, and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council at Building 110: LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island.
