Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair
On Saturday, August 21, 2021, at 6 and 7:30pm, Jacob Graham will perform “Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair”, In explaining the live performances, he says “‘Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair’ is a live, object puppetry performance piece. It presents the fallen angel as ‘the light bearer’, electrifying the global celebration of man’s achievements and hinting at ominous consequences for that progress. This piece plays with layers of time and considers it as subject matter, stylistic veneer, and audience perspective – the setting of the piece is 1893 Chicago, the performance style is mid-century New York City, and the audience perspective is the present (for now).” A screening of short films will follow the performance. Attendees are invited to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, however drop-ins are more than welcome.
This performance is part of Graham’s month-long installation “Jacob Graham’s Creatures of Yes in Suspended Animation” on view through September 6, 2021. Presented with support from The Hudson Eye.
