Performances

2017

  • REAL LIFE TEST. An immersive, physical theatre work which plunges audiences into the center of a dystopian world where past and future collide with dizzying force. Exploring themes of governmental control, gender expression and the desire for self-identification, the work questions whether an inherent price must be paid in order to achieve a fully integrated and equal society. Over the course of two hours, audiences are free to explore the highly detailed, sprawling world - encountering performers in group, duet and one-on-one scenarios. Supported in part by the Cucalorus Film Foundation and developed by Motion Picture Show and Nick Kepley.
