re:semblance June 25 - 27, conference call
Mind on Fire Variety Show / Current Space & Online / Baltimore, MD

Workshop via Zoom, July 10, hosted by The Deep Play Institute

I Want to Be is an improvised spoken dance performed via conference call. Audience members enter the conference call space and listen as an imaginary space is conjured through verbal description.
Each space is created with the intention of being destroyed and we are in it. Like a Rube Goldberg machine, ourselves and elements in the room are animated through our description, one by one affecting each other and dismantling/degrading/destroying the space.

You dial the number provided on the date that you’re supposed to.
You close your eyes and listen.
You enter a room.
There are other people in the room. We are in the room with you.
We tell you how the room is built,
What the room contains
What contains the room
What happens in the room
and how it will eventually all be destroyed.
You listen.

Every call is a new room.
