Bruce McClure / Greg Pope + Sult

Perpetual Motion goes out with a bang! As centerpiece to this conclusive program, Greg Pope (UK/Norway) returns to the Bay with Oslo/Oakland acoustic noise trio Sult to perform Skeleton, a dance macabre in four movements, conjured from a battery of slide projectors and hand-cranked flicker devices. Program is opened and closed by Performance Cinema powerhouse Bruce McClure (Brooklyn). McClure presents two performance sets of Rotorattlers—deconstructive prepared projector performances for flickering film loops, optical sound, effects pedals and 3000 watt Atomic strobes. While many have attempted (and even succeeded at) “stripping cinema to its absolute essentials”—light, darkness, sound—only in the work of McClure are these constituent parts so finely chopped, blended, pureed and synesthetically fused. “After all, wreckage is often more interesting than structure.”—Bruce McClure
