LoHiFi’s Automatown Brings Mechanized Magic to Nocturne Ten
Be a human interloper in “Hump’s Insect Boxing Gym”, a tough 50s-esque boxing club for bugs. Originally created as a puppet set for LoHiFi’s award-winning production of Hardboiled: A Sal Dali Crime Tale in 2015, the gym and its athletic insects have now been fully automatized.
Enter the Mass Scanignosis Clinic and experience firsthand the future of automated healthcare. Watch as x-rays come to life, revealing mysteries inside the human form. Participants can then move behind the scenes to get a close-up view of the gears and cams that make it all work. This installation was initially commissioned by Edmonton’s Theatre Yes in 2016 as part of their pan-Canadian collaborative production, Anxiety.
Automatown is an immersive installation demonstrating LoHiFi’s ability to create worlds on different scales using low and high-tech methods. LoHiFi is Chris Little and Theo Pitsiavas. Chris and Theo are proud to join the growing number of artists and businesses bringing downtown Dartmouth to life for Nocturne Ten.
The LoHiFi Lab is located at 12 Wentworth St, at the corner of Portland and Wentworth. Just look for the spinning egg!
