William Shatner’s image from the original Star Trek series speaks on the subjects of contemporary art and science. Phil Soltanoff (director), Rob Ramirez (video designer), and Joe Diebes (writer) have created a dynamic, video Shatner oracle by meticulously cataloguing William Shatner’s words from the original Star Trek series. Together, the artists attempt to bravely make Captain James T. Kirk expand our universe.
The show considers the future of art and science. But it also considers binary systems and the nature of language itself. In fact, AN EVENING WITH WILLIAM SHATNER ASTERISK asks the audience to learn a new language over the course of the performance. In addition, Captain Kirk, who we know from Star Trek, becomes another ‘person’ as the performance plays out. The Kirk we end with is different than the Kirk we started with—but he’s nothing more than a sequence of 6000 video samples. There’s no there there—just a video image that takes on certain human personality traits.
