Davy Sumner will be performing a new solo piece using a 1960’s Film Rewind, salvaged from the soon-to-be-demolished King Hing theater in LA’s Chinatown. Spawned by the creepy, disintegrating remains of the glory days of the King Hing, the piece explores the repetitive motions of a film projectionist at work in what might be an alternate reality.
