    A dark comedy in which two "films" unfurl simultaneously live on stage. In one "movie," Justin searches for a savior from self-annihilation, but can't be helped by the morbid voyeur Jeff or the manipulative Vivian; then he meets Rebecca, who speeds him along his path of destruction. In the second "movie," a group of city friends find themselves lost in a wilderness that turns mythic and murderous. The two "films" intersect to create a highly theatrical tale of murder gone awry. In "Flicker," genders bend, roles revers, and narratives collide as the art of theater slices and dices the medium of film. The illusion of film is shattered with Manson's real-time film technique (perfected in Big Art Group's production of "Shelf Life"). Amidst a dense sound design, live actors are seen onstage in front of cameras. Utilizing split-second choreography involving costume, set, and scene changes, seamless live video is projected in front of the stage as a completed "film."
