Eddie Kim

Eddie Kim returns to the Brick to present tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, utilizing his distinctive style of digital puppetry. Characters from World of Warcraft, Halo 3, and Grand Theft Auto 4, among other games, will be projected on a large screen in front of an audience and manipulated by gamers. They will be linked to each other and to others over the internet to play out Ovid’s stories, including “Niobe”; “Daedalus and Icarus”; and “Apollo and Daphne.” A follow-up to last year’s “Thank You, but Our Princess Is in Another Castle,” which Theateronline.com described as a “’60s happening for the digital age,” and Hemispheres Magazine called “an act of 21st century puppetry.” With a new translation of stories by Carrie Thomas and featuring music by Oxygenstar, Eddie Kim’s newest machinima piece uses more game systems and more games. Watch as classical stories are fleshed out in pixels and given life in worlds usually inhabited by night elves, aliens, and dirty cops.
