Automata presents Kyle deCamp's URBAN RENEWAL
Automata presents award-winning New York theater artist Kyle deCamp's Urban Renewal is a meditation on perception, public policy, and the significance of the buildings we live in, from a child's rigorously unsentimental point of view.
"BESSIE"-award winning performer Kyle deCamp maps an experience of growing up in Chicago in the chaotic '60s, caught in the crosshairs of power and history.
In a multimedia environment of projected space, Urban Renewal maps a piece of land in Chicago, drawing world history into a clash with individual lives. deCamp vividly spotlights her experience of growing up on a block razed by the last demolition of urban renewal in Hyde Park in 1963.
The work exploits simultaneity of perception: extremes of scale, animations, multiple narratives, locations and timeframes create portals for the audience's own memories, both private and public, individual and collective.
"Smart, feisty, imaginative solo performer"
