Details

PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, SFU Woodward's & grunt gallery present:
The Pixelated Revolution

By Rabih Mroué (Beirut, Lebanon)

 "Syrians are filming their own death," thus begins The Pixelated Revolution. Part performance, part non-traditional lecture, this searing new work examines the use of camera phones in capturing and disseminating first-hand experiences of the Syrian revolution, while exploring the role of social media in sharing and proliferating those images from the front line. The Pixelated Revolution brings to light the reality of the Syrians' plight-the "now and here"-and its interpretation by those witnessing the events minute by minute from afar-the "now but there." rabih mroué plays the role of curator, interpreter and commentator of hundreds of images and videos culled from the Internet, projecting evidence of past events, dead moments and moments of dying.

 "Buoyed by equal doses of mischievous and lacerating humour, Rabih Mroué... has used fictive intercessions to animate hidden histories." - Frieze Magazine

 Post-Performance Talk: January 16
