Event

Dhalgren Sunrise
Fort Point Theatre Channel presents DHALGREN SUNRISE, a scripted/improvisational, interactive multimedia performance project based on the sci-fi novel DHALGREN by Samuel R. Delany, arranged and directed by Mitchel Ahern.

Ahern and movement artists, musicians, and readers have created a performance vehicle that explores and interprets Dhalgrens diverse themesidentity, family, urban living, violence, and sexuality, the nature of time and reality.

Prelude, Orchid, Moons, Fire, Sex, Scorpions, and Sunrisemake up the short acts of DHALGREN SUNRISE. Each act centers a short excerpt from the novel, accompanied and interpreted by movement artists, interactive lighting and stage effects, and invented music played on improvisational instruments. Grounding the action are oversized letterpress title cards.

Each act is independent, incorporating the dissociative techniques that give DHALGREN such power. Wheeled set pieces slowly move, constantly shifting their relationships to one another, while lighting/video effects simulate the menacing glow of distant fire and interact with the movement artists. The abstract cityscape, constructed in layers, reflects the all-encompassing world of the novel.
