A ghost light is an electric light that is left energized on the stage of a theater when the theater is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark. It typically consists of an exposed incandescent bulb, CFL lamp, or LED lamp mounted in a wire cage on a portable light stand. It is also thought to guard against the ghosts of past productions cursing the ones of the present.
Using methods of experimental theater, paratheater and trance, Tureen makes work routed through assumed psychological states that is documented in the form of paintings, videos, photography and text.
Olde Man is a presentation of work made in the last 6 years in relation to one character; at the same time documentation, a document, and an exhibition with performances on October 27 and November 3 at 8pm.
This is Rufus’s first solo presentation with Essex Flowers.
