Revisit a multimedia concert by visionary guitarist and composer Kaki King.
Were you there? DATA NOT FOUND is a gripping meditation on the data we live with, and the data we leave behind by composer, guitarist, and performance artist Kaki King, hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself".
In DATA NOT FOUND, King reimagines her guitar to immerse the audience in a world that is both sonic and visual. Inspired by elements of nature, DATA NOT FOUND incorporates lush, often responsive technical theater and projection work, using the stage as a canvas. The piece invites the audience to contemplate the nature of love, loss, alienation and rebirth, and how we as humans attempt to create meaning from the vast endless patterns of our world.
Featuring King’s virtuosic musicianship punctuated by sparse, theatrical monologue, DATA NOT FOUND offers highly personal and poetic storylines that serve as an elegy to the traces of things that are lost, and found.
For one time only, revisit this highlight from The Arts Center’s archives, filmed in The Black Box on November 13, 2019. Bridge the distance, join the community online.
DATA NOT FOUND is a joint co-commission made possible by the The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi; International Festival of Arts & Ideas, New Haven, CT; the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech; ARTS@TECH at Georgia Tech; Krannert Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and Ovation Guitars. Developmental support provided by MASS MoCA. Technical support provided by POTION Design.
