Illusory Characters With Startling Stage Presence

“When “Losing Something,” written and directed by Kevin Cunningham, opens on Friday at the 3LD Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan, the production will mark the first use by an American theater company of a high-definition video projection system called Eyeliner. Using Eyeliner together with Isadora — new software that controls digital video — Mr. Cunningham and the creative team at 3LD (or 3-Legged Dog) are hoping to produce some dazzling, perhaps even shocking, effects.

“We don’t have to obey the laws of physics anymore,” Mr. Cunningham, also 3LD’s executive artistic director, said before a recent rehearsal. During a subsequent run-through of the show — an oblique ghost play told from the point of view of a middle-aged man drifting into the oblivion of memory loss — actors routinely floated in space or appeared out of nowhere.”
