Upgrade Soul

Comix and Live Music with Ezra Claytan Daniels and Alexis Gideon

Thu, Mar 28, 2013 7 PM

Ezra Claytan Daniels’s new digital comic Upgrade Soul tells the story of Hank and Molly Nonnar, wealthy science buffs who decide to fund a risky, experimental genetic therapy to rejuvenate the human body.There’s only one condition: They must be first in line to receive it. When dangerous complications develop, a battle for psychological dominance begins.

In this event, Daniels presents a live, interactive version of his format-busting comic with live musical accompaniment by Alexis Gideon, who performed with his own animated work at the Wexner Center last October. (app. 70 mins., digital projection)
