Lab Or is a new site-specific performance / installation created collaboratively by Scrap and Salvage and artists from a variety of mediums including sculpture, film-making, architecture, theater design, and music composition. The work is highly physical, visual, musical and almost entirely non-verbal. The Labor Temple, or Redstone Building, where The Lab is located is a historic landmark on 16th street between Mission and South Van Ness. It was built in 1914 and played an integral role in the San Francisco Labor movement of the early 20th century. For this piece, artists from all mediums have been invited to investigate and respond to the space’s history, myths, legends, and ghosts. The room’s past, present, and potential future are distilled into a performance and installation that digs deeply into the conflict between humankind and the world it has made for itself.
