Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer, guitarist, and performance artist Kaki King has created DATA NOT FOUND -- a gripping meditation on the traces of things that we live with and the traces we leave behind.
DATA NOT FOUND expands on Kaki's work in projection mapping (The Neck is a Bridge to the Body in 2015, and Modern Yesterdays in 2020), and innovates technologically with cutting-edge audio- responsive software and hardware. Inspired by elements of nature, DATA NOT FOUND incorporates lush projection work that uses the stage as a canvas -- from the surface of Kaki’s guitars to the floor space in which she moves. What's more, DATA NOT FOUND firmly moves Kaki into the realm of theater artist, incorporating monologue and staging to deliver highly personal and poetic storylines.
In DATA NOT FOUND, Kaki invites audiences to contemplate the nature of love, loss, alienation, and rebirth, and how we as humans attempt to create meaning from the vast endless patterns of our world.
DATA NOT FOUND is a joint co-commission made possible by the The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi; International Festival of Arts & Ideas, New Haven, CT; the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech; Georgia Tech Arts; Krannert Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and Ovation Guitars. Developmental support provided by MASS MoCA. Technical support provided by POTION Design.
