    Requiem for Tesla

    Presented by at The Off Center

    December 1 - December 18, 2016


    Requiem for Tesla

    Requiem for Tesla is a semi-biographical, sci-fi homage to Nikola Tesla, a genius inventor who loved pigeons, hated spherical objects and was undoubtedly one of the most fascinating and controversial figures of all time. Requiem for Tesla is an ecstatic and evocative tribute to the man who gave us alternating current and dreamed of spaceships in a time when even electricity was dangerous magic. Tesla’s impassioned efforts to improve the quality of life for humankind left him straddling a line between genius and insanity. Rude Mechs’ high-voltage stage-collage honoring the genius/madman fuses electrical magic, subconscious desire, and a real message from Mars. Featuring an hallucinatory Mark Twain, live music, and a spine-tingling Tesla coil all combust in this sci-fi electromagnetic polyphase dynamo play.
