A hybrid of sci-fi and film noir, with elements of time travel and telepathy, Spectropia is an original mix of film, performance, and video game that uses the metaphor of supernatural possession to investigate identity and the shifting sands of a debt based culture. Performers employ motion-sensing technology to inhabit onscreen characters in this full-length feature on three screens in The Ringling Courtyard.
This performance is related to the special exhibition Toni Dove: Embodied Machines on view February 25 through May 20, 2018.
