Exploration of the Everchanging
This explorative theater experience is created to be everchanging. Every performance will be different because the audience is different every time. Our experimental production is one in which the audience must reconcile with their own awareness of being a passive viewer. The piece dissects the performer-audience relationship to its core, as well as social connection through the screen. The performers engage with the audience beyond conventional means of communication and challenge the idea of cathartic reward in watching a linear narrative. Through this always honest, always truthful and always adapting piece, the performance is one that entices the audience to reconsider what they can and cannot control. The performers never pretend, they are always themselves and we invite the audience to do the same.
Note: All performance times are in MDT
