Darcy James Argue's Secret Society

  • BAM Harvey Theater 651 Fulton St Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States

As part of the 2015 BAM Next Wave Festival, Darcy James Argue and his acclaimed 18-member jazz ensemble Secret Society present Real Enemies--a multimedia work that explores American conspiracy theories in 12 vignettes. Using both contemporary and historical stories of both real and imagined plots, Real Enemies will build a new conspiracy theory on stage.

Featuring a series of short films by Peter Nigrini, broadcast on multiple surfaces designed by Maruti Evans, Real Enemies creates connections and mini-narratives between disparate pieces of information. The work's narrative, by Isaac Butler, is drawn from declassified government papers, conspiracy documentaries, and historical sources--fusing a final collage of pictures, multiple channels of simultaneously-broadcast film, and live music performed by Darcy James Argue's Secret Society.
