machines x 7 at Here: Jerry-rigged Hilarityhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/jerry-rigged-hilarity/717/
The show ( which you can catch a video clip at here) is created and performed by Quinn Bauriedel (Chief Commander), Geoff Sobelle (Phineas), Trey Lyford (Liam), and directed by Aleksandra Wolska; props for the props to Steven Dufala and Billy Blaise Dufala, credited with machines design and set treatment. It’s hard to tell if the three men are xenophobic suburbanites, or simply trapped in a spaceship. The presence of dogs, cats, and fish say this shouldn’t be the case, but the general feel is outer-space like, mostly thanks to the Lost in Space “special effects” and Liam’s disturbingly convincing static radio transmission jabber and whirring sound effects. After rolling out of his bed, buried in the wall, he accompanies even the smallest movement of an object with a whoosh or vroom done with the precision of an idiot savant.
