A REMOTE INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION
DIRECTED & CONCEIVED BY
X PART 1: THE INSIDIOUS drops its audience into a time in the not so distant future, where the “I” sees and monitors all. Where equity is turned on its head, authenticity is stripped, and those left in the wake of the new “utopia” struggle to comply. In this allegorical take on the insidiousness of assimilation, erasure, and homogenized lack of racial identity, director Aaron Salazar explores a character study of inner turmoil, flanked by the threat of consequence in a “world” that values the illusion of harmony and anyone who threatens that illusion is demoted to the status of X. Will they comply or will they simply disappear? Find out in this timely thriller written by Jason Veasey.
You are invited to witness, as a trainee of the new “WE”.
