Fluke


Radiohole

Fluke is a theater work by the ensemble Radiohole. The piece parallels late 19th-century spiritualism with the technological advancements of our own era. On a claustrophobic set that mimics a crowded boat on an open seascape, the company conjures both historical characters, such as Thomas Edison, and fictional figures, including Herman Melville’s Captain Ahab. Through the use of innovative sound technology, Fluke explores the porous connections between technology and spirituality. As in all Radiohole works, the elaborate, chaotic production is operated entirely by the performers onstage.
