In 1990, David was invited by the Impossible Industrial Action Theater to design sounds and create the soundtrack for their theatrical collaboration with Towson State University: “The Pleasure Raiders”.
While in Baltimore, Perkins teamed up with fractal artist Marcos Ferrer to develop David’s musical concept FUTURE CIRCUS into a multi-media performance art group, which traveled in the US, Japan, Germany, & Poland working with other artists as well as introducing the concept of audience participation into the act.
In 1993, David went to Poland and worked with Szczecin’s Teatr Wspolczesny (The Modern Theater of Szczecin) creating the music, video, and animation effects for the acclaimed “Moda Smierc” (1996) - which was invited to the Bonn Biennale, Germany - the bi-yearly showcase for the best modern theater in Europe. David also negotiated the rights for Teatr Wspolczesny to perform Woody Allen’s A Mid-Summer Night’s Sex Comedy, which premiered in Szczecin on September 12, 1998.
Other sound and video works for Teatr Wspolczesny include:
“Kochan I Nas troje” (1998)
“Balllladyna” (1998) *winner of the All Polish Classics Competition
Pablo Picasso’s “Four Little Girls” (1998)
While in Poland, David, with the help of a grant from the Soros Foundation, created Student Teatr Szczecin, a theater educational institution that brought German and Polish students of the Euroregion Pomerania together to learn the various aspects of using computer technology in music and video to develop theater.
With the Russians leaving Poland in the early 1990's coinciding with the Polish Ministry of Education deciding that Russian would no longer be their (forced) second language, David was elected Vice-President of the Szczecin English Speaking Association which brought together students, teachers, and the business community to assist all parties in mastering English for their specific goals.
