ASU prof concocts her own high-tech night on the town

Arizona State University professor and intermedia star Muriel Magenta has drawn on a career’s worth of creativity to develop CLUB M, an immersive “video environment” that’s likely to rule festivals, galleries, and the Internet with its fusion of dance, music, and tech, including footage of human dancers from ASU and Opendance in computer-animated costumes.

CLUB M premières in a free, one-night installation at Paul V. Galvin Playhouse. Unlike meat-space clubs with flexible arrival times, it commences at 8 p.m. Your experience will wrap up about 35 minutes later, leaving plenty of time to hit the rest of the town with your transformed self – since, the work, as Magenta says, CLUB M “sends out vibes to make an emotional impact . . . on everyone who goes there. It’s kind of an edgy club; definitely an offbeat club. It’s where the artists go.”
