Passport, by Robert Whitman, will be an innovative, non-narrative, imagistic theater piece that includes live performance, video projections, sound, and props in original environments fashioned by the artist. Co-commissioned by Dia and Peak Performances @ Montclair State (NJ) this ambitious new work will be performed simultaneously in two places: outside on the banks of the Hudson River near Dia:Beacon, and indoors at the Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University in New Jersey. During the performance, images generated at each site will be transmitted to, and projected at, the other performance site.
This program is supported in part by Lisa and Richard Baker, Heidi Olson and Roger Duffy, and The Pace Gallery. Additional support is provided by the New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency.
