Alladeen is a highly visual, cross-media collaboration between the New York-based ensemble The Builders Association and London’s motiroti-the duo of Keith Khan and Ali Zaidi, a pair known for spectacles, installations, and performances. The Internet is seen as the modern magic carpet in this hallucinatory work directed by Marianne Weems. The piece combines electronic music, new video techniques, an architectural set and live performance to explore the myth of Alladeen-a.k.a. Aladdin-and related themes of wish fulfillment and non-traditional global travel via high technology.

Co-producers: Arts International, Barbican BITE:03, Le-Maillon, Strasbourg, and Romaeuropa Festival 03, Melbourne International Arts Festival.

Co-commissioners: The Wexner Center for the Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Walker Art Center, REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater), and the MIST Residency Program at The Kitchen.
