The New York Times calls Alice Farley "a magician of light whose work falls somewhere between Alwin Nikolais and Oskar Schlemmer." Down Beat's critics and readers have repeatedly voted Henry Threadgill "Best Composer." Together they have created a highly original work of music theater which they call a "science fiction for today." Seven dancers, five musicians, and an array of sophisticated theatrical techniques create a haunting and humorous expose of the "human life of machines" in our technology-addicted society.
