INVISIBLE, Greensboro's experimental multimedia performance collective featuring Mark Dixon, Bart Trotman, Jodi Staley, Jonathan Henderson and secretly Fred Snider, will offer two presentations of their current production, The New Obsolete, at WAM on Friday, July 20 at 7pm and Thursday, July 26 at 6pm followed by a film screening of Kooky at 7pm.

Described as "an exploded view of the strange romance between humans and technology...a love/hate drama set in a landscape of contraptions," The New Obsolete offeres audiences an amalgamation of sound making inventions, like the "Selectric Piano," multi-channel video, and a vast archive of collected sounds. 

Visitors may view the "set" of The New Obsolete installed in the Museum's atrium from July 17 through July 26 during regular museum hours.

A pre-performance reception take place at 6:30pm on Friday, July 20.

All performances are free. 

The New Obsolete has been produced with support of the North Carolina Arts Council and the partnering arts councils of the Central Piedmont Regional Artists Hub Program.
