VISITORS FROM FAR AWAY TO THE STATE MACHINE is a multi-media space opera. Two aliens travel thousands of light years to Earth for their honeymoon. On their journey, they tease one another with sexy and profane stories from the past, present, and future.

Running time: 90 minutes
The apparatus for Visitors was created so that it could be performed by non-specialized performers. None of the performers are required to memorize lines, for example.
This work for me renewed my interest in the power of speculative fiction. I look to follow this trajectory into future projects where fiction and lying will play a central role to how I approach creating apparatuses for a performing arts context.
