Cake Industries - Jesse Stevens
Media Artists Jesse Stevens & Dean Petersen have worked under the collaborative pseudonym of Cake Industries since 2006. They are artists, tinkerers and futuristic dreamers. Their practice uses electromechanics, handmade electronics, and robotics to create anthropomorphic and autonomous objects that embrace retro-futurism. Heavily influenced by 1950s science fiction dystopia, Cake Industries’ installations, performances, and sculptural objects anachronistically portray society in order to investigate narratives, culture, reality, and future.

Open LABs is here to share and explore the wonderful world of creative makers. Each talk allows artists, musicians, engineers, performers, and designers to come together and share their work and creative passions with the public and other creatives.

The Birds Conference - La Mama 7-9 Nov 2014

Perhaps this story starts from this phrase: “I am the Truth”

A faith that embraces nothing more than the one Living Truth, animating the hearts of mystics through the ages and across the world.
The story of this performance is based on the 4500-line Iranian epic poem The Conference of the Birds; its captivating poetic style explores the fundamental nature of truth (God, wisdom). The birds of the world, each of which holds special significance, seek out the Simorgh - a mythical Persian bird much like the phoenix. 

Brook’s stage adaptation of this 12th-century Persian poem first came on stage in 1979.

Performer, advisor, puppeteer and puppet maker:
Elnaz Sheshgelani

Directors: Lloyd Jones, Scott Mostafa Welsh,
Ren Walters, Rick Evertsz and Kerry Davies

Music and sound by Clinton Green

Vocal: Shani Holmes
