Be Here Now: MASS MoCA Hosts “Best Practices in Banana Time” with Doctor Rodenberger in North Adams Dec. 3 [Berkshire on Stage]
From our News Desk: With well over a million users, Second Life, an online virtual reality world/community, active twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, is a phenomenon to be reckoned with.
Mass MoCA’s current exhibition The Workers includes artist Stephanie Rothenberg’s Portraits: Second Life Workers which depict a range of avatars and the jobs they have found or created on Second Life.
Performed in front of both a real and a virtual audience, Rothenberg’s mixed reality talk show, Best Practices in Banana Time, will be presented on Saturday, December 3, 2011, at 8 PM in Mass MoCA’s Club B-10 as part of the ongoing Alt Cabaret series. Rothenberg’s theater piece questions life online and considers what it means to live between the real and the virtual world, while also looking at how labor issues encountered in real life manifest themselves in Second Life.
