Ushers greet attendees with a shamanistic cleansing ritual as they enter Apparition, the duo Trouble’s group of overlapping environments of light, sound, and performance. Sprey: A Narrow Vehicle dramatizes this moment of entry using light, wind, moisture, leaves, and smoke, conveying the audience to roaming musical performances by special guest performers. Just beyond that, Dial, a sculptural projection screen, features live video projections and a 24-hour sound track.
Emanations in the back room offers a sacred-object gift shop staffed by a silent usher who refuses to sell. Using a photo-booth audience members can have their faces uploaded into a projected Indo-Tibetan deity.
