Troy, NY: An interactive performance piece – the product of collaboration between Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students in arts and architecture – will incorporate interactive video, performers drawn from parkour and a capella, and audience participation in a narrative based on E.M. Forster’s 1909 sci-fi novella The Machine Stops.

The Machine Starts, developed in the Production, Installation, and Performance (PIP) design studio, will be presented in six performances on Feb. 28, March 1, and 2 in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), according to Michael Oatman, professor of architecture and co-coordinator of PIP.
