Reality is boring. Drugs are harmful. How does a person escape?
Reggie Watts knows how.
Returning from his break-out hit from last year’s UTR festival, Disinformation, Reggie Watts invites you to take a trip with Transition, an explosion of stereophonic effects, live video interactions, geometric movement sequences, and onstage BMX acrobatics. Watts and his theatrical consorts employ visual and linguistic tricks to destabilize the mind, baiting the viewer into believing that a form of reality will stabilize, a belief that the piece constantly denies. A blast of pop culture deconstruction, Transition is a psychedelic experience that, once understood, radicalizes the notion of how we perceive time.
Running time: 60 minutes.
Seating is general admission for all UTR shows at The Public. Seats are available on a first-come, first served basis. Service fees apply for phone and online orders. Latecomers are seated at the discretion of house management, so arrive early.
