Introduction

Jonathan Dee's novel Palladio uncovers the awkwardness of two former lovers becoming coworkers at an avant-garde ad agency. In a new adaptation at Symphony Space, composer Ben Neill and media artist Bill Jones expand on the novel's theme with the premiere of their interactive movie, featuring musicians and video mixed live. Performers Mikel Rouse, Zoe Lister-Jones, and Cort Garretson are digitally transported into an environment created from the ads depicted in the story, as the worlds of music, art, and advertising combine — adding powerful fuel to the ongoing debate over the lines between commerce and culture.
