My Machine is Powered by Clocks

A workshop production presented at Ice Factory 2013, the New Ohio Theatre

MY MACHINE IS POWERED BY CLOCKS considers a time when time travel has become a relatively common thing, when a future can be seen and a past can be changed. As with any kind of new technology, there are potential pitfalls and abuses. Like pieces in a game of Jenga, everything is stacked up on top of everything. You move something from the bottom; the top pieces collapse. You can escape your own time and context, but you may lose focus. You may even forget who you are.

“A very beautiful, very complicated piece of theater [with] visual images and danced/physicalized moments that capture a mood or emotion or idea with real visceral incisiveness. The imagination and invention displayed by Walker and Videt, and their designers is awe-inspiring. I am eager to see where these smart, talented artists take this show as they hone it and shape it.”

-Martin Denton, Editor, NY Theatre

“Very refreshing. A tightly spun tapestry of choreography, stage directions, lights, sound and visuals. The play has many humorous and witty moments; the stage direction by Calla Videt and choreography by Rick and Jeff Kuperman cleverly executes these ideas. The fantastic cast make the piece comes to life with constant comic energy. An entertaining evening and the dynamic cast is well worth seeing.”
