Created in collaboration with Professors Mark Yim and Simon Kim and the graduate engineers and architects of University of Pennsylvania

Pig Iron has embarked on a two-year, multi-pronged inquiry into the hidden corners of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  For the past several months, grad students from UPenn's engineering and architecture program have been meeting with Pig Iron artists to tinker in the brambles of Shakespeare's play.  The result is a series of performance etudes — thumbnail sketches of an alternate universe where plants are programmed and love shimmers with electric light.

Please join us for this free showing of glimpses into a very unusual aesthetic collision.
