Cyberfest is a Best Bet – Austin Chronicle
This dark spectacle showcases almost 20 years of original work by ethos, the Austin-based performance troupe headed by maestro Chad Salvata. Blending electronic media and live performance to transcend typical theatrical offerings, this concert-style event invites the audience to dance, drink, tweet, take photos – there's an Instagram photo contest during the performances, even – and be dazzled by performances from cybernetic operas including The Black Blood, Panoptikon, Triskelion,Elytra, and more. (Bonus: Songs from ethos' upcoming film, Octia of the Pink Ocean.) Directed by Bonnie Cullum and featuring a top-notch cast and tech crew of talented Vortex regulars. Wild? Bizarre? Complex? Electronically rocking? Yes, and then some. Sept. 20-28. Thu.-Sun., 9pm. $10-30.
