August 21st-24th (12-6pm), Location One will continuously show an electronic
presentation of Bitter Bierce that incorporates the prior night's
Two-time Obie Award-winning playwright Mac Wellman will present, in
collaboration with a team of Location One artists, a new work-in-progress
entitled "Bitter Bierce," based on the life and works of satirist, critic,
journalist, novelist and short-story writer Ambrose Bierce.

In this unique collaboration between Mac Wellman and an international group
of Location One artists each performance will combine live and electronic
elements; a live actor will perform at three of the five scheduled events;
artists connected to a network both locally and remotely will respond to the
performer and the script using collaborative software to manipulate in
realtime video images and audio elements. These large-scale images will then
be projected onto the gallery walls and online at www.location1.org.

During gallery hours August 21st-24th, Location One will continuously show
an electronic presentation of Bitter Bierce that incorporates the prior
night's performance.
