Mr Blank solo performances are a unique and visceral blend of experimental sound sculpture and abstract theater performance art. Productions utilize a plethora of nontraditional props and reality bending sound sources including: Character costumes and masks, disheveled stacks of TVs playing strobing images and glitchy video projections, homemade and circuit bent instruments, noise making toys, abstract set designs, and other found materials… plus at times even incorporating live needle piercing, electro-shock, and other elements reminiscent of mystical Fakir torture arts.
Mr Blank’s performances, although ever changing and evolving, are a visual abstract storytelling. Invoking scenes of a lonely and toxic post-apocalyptic world where there lives an unhinged man (or is he monster?) bending reality and opening portals to multitudes of unknowns where dreams awaken as reality…
