Choreographer Jonah Bokaer presents a 40-minute dance performance inspired by rare dramatic texts composed by Albert Camus for The Workers' Theater company. The 100th anniversary of Camus' birth is currently being celebrated worldwide. Bokaer employs the author's ideas of existentialism, absurdism, lyrical resistance and displacement to create new meaning and inquiry into the nature of placing dance in museums.

Lighting: Alex Riviere
Music: Soundwalk Collective

This event is part of the second annual TechArts Festival, an annual showcase of the creative spirit through student and faculty performances, events and exhibitions, from February 14 – March 1, 2014. Music, dance, theatre, digital, literary and visual arts flourish at the technological research university, inspiring and reflecting research and education. Kicking off with the world premiere of "Radical Love" by DramaTech Theater on February 14, the 2014 Festival includes works that showcase the convergence of art and technology, and also works that are solely artistic in nature. The Festival will be held at venues across the Georgia Tech campus.
