The Machine Starts is based on E.M. Forster‚s 1909 sci-fi novella The Machine Stops, an eerily prescient tale that predicts the internet, television, global environmental ruin, social isolation and the impact of technology on the human experience.
Under the Renssealer leadership of artists Shawn Lawson and Michael Oatman, professors in HASS and the SoA respectively, this student run performance features A Capella singing group, The Rusty Pipes, The Parkour Club, and Center Stage, a spoken word group, as well as interactive media, new music and architectures designed to transform EMPAC.
There are 6 shows, and only 100 seats available for each show. Tickets are $10 general admission, $6 students.
