Here's the thing people of the internet world. There are all sorts of people in your lives, I'm sure. There are the wacky ones, the confident ones, and the crazy ones. For me one of the people in my life is this lady Annie. She's a wacky, confident and crazy. Mostly because of her love of the theatrical arts.
I've seen her act in a few different performances over the years, but none have I been quite as impressed with as what she's pulling off in downtown Los Angeles.
Here's a synopsis taken from the ticket website:
"The Day Shall Declare It is an immersive, site-responsive theater installation that explores the concept of work, both what it means to us and what it does to us."
WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?! Good question I'll try and lay this one out nice and easy for you.
- The performance is called: "The Day Shall Declare It"
- Immersive/Site-Responsive Theater means: You enter a building, which is the set of the play. The actors will interact with you as needed or inspired and the building you're in acts as a HUGE piece of the performance.
- "Exploring the Concept of Work": What is WORK? You go there, you do it, and you are rewarded for doing it. Then you have to decide if it's all worth doing again. You know, something like that.
Anyway, take a look at some of the behind the scenes photo's I grabbed a few weeks ago of the team building out the "Site-responsive theater" and I hope you can make it down for one of the showings. I'm sure you'll be impressed.
