Tracy and the Plastics

Special Event — Tickets $10 ($6 students)

June 3 (Friday) 8 pm

Tracy and the Plastics

This collaboration between the department of Visual and Environmental Studies, the Office for the Arts at Harvard, and Harvard Film Archive presents a live, lo-fi video-music performance by Tracy and the Plastics, an electronic art/new media punk band created and performed by lesbian feminist video artist Wynne Greenwood. A featured artist in the upcoming 2004 Whitney Biennial, Greenwood enacts the roles of all three band members: carrying the tunes as Tracy live on stage, with Nikki at the keyboards and Cola on drums. The latter pair interact with Tracy via video projection in a performance that, by placing as much importance on the prerecorded images as the live performer, results in a virtuosic critique of the inherent hierarchical dynamics of post-MTV spectacle.


Cabot House is a 10-to-15-minute walk from Harvard Square. From Garden Street, take a right to Shepard Street past the Hilles Library and into the Radcliffe Quad on the left. In the Quad, look for the bell tower which is north; 3 o'clock on the dial points to where the theater is. The building has floor-to-ceiling windows with an exterior ramp for access. Look for signs indicating the location of the space.
