Portfolio > Hello World, stills and photo documentation

Genevieve Quick’s Hello World focuses on CETI (Celadonian ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence), a research consortium that facilitates communication between Planet Celadon and Earth. As the narrative unfolds through live performance and a video game, the performers encounter a black hole, the multiverse, and communication outages that the scientists attempt to remedy.

Hello World blurs the boundaries between live performance and gaming, extending Quick’s exploration of global identity and politics in media-based practices. With a cast of all self-identified Asian Americans, the video game offers a two-way channel between earth and the multiverse, a bridge across time, and a metaphor for the Asian diaspora.

Featuring compositions by Adria Otte and Gabby Wen.

Featuring performances by CETI team members: Gabby Wen, Judy Jun, and Genevieve Quick.
