About

Part theatre, part Twitch.tv, this groundbreaking play is a feature-length livestream game telecast, whose central characters, Spyda and Lynxa, are avatars powered by the VR headset and mocap suit worn by stage actors who game the sprawling virtual world fresh with each performance. Set in a post–climate change world raging with late-capitalist rebellion and excess, Anti-Gone is a quest for happiness in the sunken city, where the characters shop, score drugs, and hotbox cinema.

This exhibition is housed at the Biodigital Theatre at New Frontier Central.

Sun. 1/26–Tue. 1/28, Thu. 1/30: 5:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m.

Artist Bio

Theo Triantafyllidis

Theo Triantafyllidis (b. 1988, Athens, Greece) is an artist who builds virtual spaces and the interfaces for the human body to inhabit. He creates complex worlds and systems where the virtual and the physical merge in uncanny, absurd, and poetic ways. These are manifested as performances, mixed reality experiences, games, and interactive installations. He holds an MFA from UCLA Design Media Arts and a degree in architecture from the National Technical University of Athens.
