Inspired by the on-again, off-again nature of theatre during the pandemic, Zeno Box is a performance art installation that investigates the value of creating art that never reaches its audience. Zeno Box places a single actor inside of a plexiglass box, in which they perform excerpts from a variety of plays. Meanwhile, a randomized set of cues turn the lights and microphone inside the box on and off, leaving the actor with no control over what parts of the performance the audience is able to enjoy, and what is performed to no one at all. After each excerpt, the actor writes a note to themselves on the box itself, leaving echoes of past performances visible to future audiences and creating a physical structure that evolves over the course of the festival. Zeno Box originated as part of Eastern Front Theatre's Macro Digitals: CONNECTIONS, under the guidance of Kat McCormack, with original collaborators Kya Mosey, Trent Logan and Ryan Wilcox.
