The Neo-Futurists’ latest takes us into the mind of ensemble member Kurt Chiang as he relives his experience transcribing by hand the entirety of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. His attempt to explain why he did this results in a piece as idiosyncratic, perplexing and fascinating as the act of transcription that inspires it. Structurally, Analog seems more concerned with exploration than a traditional escalation of conflict, though that shouldn’t be confused with a lack of action or story. It always strikes at the heart as it challenges the mind, making the show as moving as it is distinctive.
