What does the future hold? What follows us from the past? What more can we learn about the present? Live cinema performers, Potter-Belmar Labs, will answer these questions and more, on tour stops throughout the U.S. Southwest and West Coast in May 2008.

Traveling by train, this pair of itinerant fortune-tellers will probe the collective subconscious of audiences from Albuquerque to Seattle, and on many stops in between. Potter-Belmar Labs brings the ancient tradition of the magic lantern show to the 21st Century, inviting the audience to participate in a collective fortune-telling experience, and presenting the results in music, sound and moving image.

The Fortune tour is made possible in part through Meet the Composer's MetLife Creative Connections program.

If you or someone you know is interested in hosting a private Fortune experience, let us know! The performance is scalable and well-suited for small groups. Email us: pbl at potterbelmar dot org.

Also, at some stops along the tour, Potter-Belmar Labs will be presenting their workshop, What Is Live Cinema, and How Do We Do It?, an overview of historical and contemporary live cinema, with an emphasis on those artists who have influenced and inspired PBL.
