Dirges for Dead Malls
Machine Project (Echo Park)
This performance pays tribute to the increasingly irrelevant suburban mall space in an age of Big Box stores and economic angst. Claire Cronin and Stephen Van Dyck will pay tribute to dead, abandoned malls through a performance of 80′s pop hits redone as dirges, with a corresponding sound installation.
