OBJECT COLLECTION was founded in 2004 by writer/director Kara Feely and composer/musician Travis Just. Based in Brooklyn, the group operates within the intersecting practices of performance, experimental music and theater. We are concerned with simultaneity, complexity, and radicality, combining dense layers of text, notation, objects and processes. We work to give audiences unconventional viewing experiences through our merging of theatricality and pedestrian activity. Our works upset habitual notions of time, pace, progression and virtuosity. We value accumulation above cohesion.
KARA FEELY is a writer, director and designer for theater and interdisciplinary performance. Her work draws inspiration from experimental writing and music composition strategies, and combines a variety of materials, from found text fragments and landscapes of objects, to recorded interviews and radio broadcasts.
TRAVIS JUST is a composer. His music often uses text, objects, and gesture in addition to instruments, voice, and electronics and has been presented around the world at festivals, basements, galleries, concerts, events, and on the radio.
