MIAC Live: The Intergalactic Nemesis: Target Earth

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 7:30pm
Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center

Telling an all-ages adventure story set in the 1930s, The Intergalactic Nemesis mashes up comic book and radio play formats into a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience, a new art form, the Live-Action Graphic Novel. Three actors voice the dozens of characters, a Foley artist creates all of the sound effects, and a pianist plays a cinematic score, while more than 1,250 individual full-color hi-res comic book panels tell a hilarious sci-fi adventure story visually from an enormous movie screen. And it’s all done live in front of your eyes. If you have an inner 12-year-old (or an actual one living in your home), The Intergalactic Nemesis is one show you don’t want to miss. Nerds of all ages will love this retro multimedia extravaganza.

Arrive early and browse the work of local graphic artist Todd Scalise or try your hand at computer animation with Erie animators extraordinaire MoreFrames.
