$30

Helen Wicks Works presents Click Tracks, a new show inspired by the history of film scoring and newsreels. In collaboration with rigger Benjy Young, aerial dancers will perform on a 4-story tightwire.

The 4-story tightwire provides a frame of time and space that reconstructs sheet music, offering multi-directional timelines. The choreography examines the relationship between technology, sound, and cinema. Click Tracks questions how spectacle runs parallel throughout vaudeville, science fiction, melodramatic cinema, and news from 1920s-69. The same music used in Vaudevillian shorts in 1933 accompanied 1964 newsreels. How has this spectacle structure set us up for consuming news and entertainment today?
